Tottenham midfielder Oliver Skipp’s chances of going out on loan seem to have decreased, according to Football London.
Despite Skipp struggling for minutes on the pitch, his manager, Antonio Conte ‘is believed to have rejected any prospect of a loan move so far’ as he values him highly and is unwilling to leave himself short in central midfield.
The Spurs boss has a high opinion of Pape Matar Sarr, who has impressed Conte, and is expected to return from a hip injury next month.
Leeds United are one of several clubs interested in signing Tottenham’s 22-year-old midfielder Oliver Skipp on loan, according to a report by Tottenham correspondent Alasdair Gold.
Several other Premier League clubs, including Crystal Palace, Fulham, and Bournemouth, are all keen on taking Skipp on loan until the end of the season.
The talented Englishman who missed the second half of last season due to a pelvic injury, is willing to go out on loan to gain more playing time.
However, the current outlook for a transfer deadline-day loan for the young Tottenham player is grim, unless Conte has a change of heart and decides to let him go.
Conte is aware of Skipp’s potential and his impact in the Premier League.
The England U21 international was expected to play a significant role in the Spurs squad this season, but injury and competition for places have limited his playing time.
A loan move would have provided Skipp with the opportunity to play more games and show his quality, but it seems unlikely at this stage.
