Jose Mourinho has revealed Oliver Skipp wants to leave Tottenham on loan next season after committing his long-term future to the club.

On Friday morning, we relayed confirmation from Spurs that Skipp has signed a new four-year contract, keeping him in north London until the summer of 2024.

Skipp has made just nine appearances across all competitions so far this season, so to some his willingness to pen a new deal may have come as a surprise.

But at just 19, the midfielder has plenty of room to improve and become a more significant part of the first-team picture.

And according to Mourinho, Skipp wants to continue his development by playing elsewhere next season, gaining what could turn out to be vital experience in a team he can play for more often.

Word comes from the London Evening Standard’s Dan Kilpatrick, who attended Mourinho’s press conference on Friday afternoon. He also relayed Mourinho tipping Skipp as a potential Tottenham captain of the future.

Hopefully Spurs can find the right club for Skipp to aid his development properly.



  1. Congrats Oliver, maybe a year in the Champonship or a lower PL team will do you the world of good ,perhaps Troy Parrot needs to do the same u2 are the future of the club. Good luck guys.

  2. Another other hyped “youth” player. Spurs managed to destroy what was good in Winks, these days he just passes short or backwards, gone as his defence splitting passes.
    Took a £60+ million midfielder and called him lazy, now he doesn’t want to play for us.
    Took Dier, was incredible defender, did well when pushed into midfield, now the guy has no clue where he will play next and lost his England place.
    Parrot is about to become a nobody because we all know Jose doesn’t play youth, he plays established players.

    Why would you replace a manager who’s mentality is about befriending and supporting players, and so the players mentality follows this, and then put in place a manager who “challenges” with criticism and ever plays youth when we have invested so heavily in youth system!

    Levy is unbelievably stupid.
