A sensible deal all around.

It’s a busy day at Hotspur Way today.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Oliver Skipp is reportedly going out on loan for the 2020/21 season, heading northeast to recently relegated Norwich City. This is according to most of the beat writers who follow the club, but Dan Kilpatrick and Charlie Eccleshare had it first:

Spurs have already sent out highly touted prospect Troy Parrott to Championship side Millwall, so it’s good to see the club getting minutes to the teenagers that are expected to make an impact in seasons to come. Skipp garnering interest from the continent isn’t a surprise either, but staying in England seemed to be a priority for him.

Norwich will be trying to do the bounce and get back to the Premier League, but as is always the case, Premier League clubs are trying to pluck players from them now that they’re relegated. Their midfield minutes were quite spread out so there seems to be ample opportunity for the 19-year-old to see action.

We look forward to following Skipp’s progression in the Championship and see where it takes him after the upcoming season.

Update (2:00 p.m. ET) — It’s official! Skippy is a Norwich City player for the 2020-21 season.
