Paul Robinson has tipped Tottenham to “sell a few players” after Oliver Skipp joined Norwich City on a season-long loan deal.
The former White Hart Lane number one, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, claimed that it is a “great move” for the 19-year-old after a year on the fringes of the first team at Spurs.
The centre-midfielder moves to Carrow Road for the entirety of the 2020/21 campaign having penned a new four-year contract in North London in July.
Skipp made 11 appearances for the Lilywhites last season and Jose Mourinho even tipped the teenager to be a future captain of the club.
His temporary exit came shortly after the signing of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton on a long-term deal.
When asked by Football Insider if Norwich was the right move for the young midfielder, Robinson said: “I think it is a good loan for him.
“He needed a move to a top Championship club or a lower Premier League club and he has got that with Norwich.
“He wasn’t getting enough game time despite being in and around the squad regularly. There is only so long that a player of that age and that quality can stay in and around the squad hoping for his chance.
“Jose has been brought in to win things and he wants to win things immediately. He wants to shake up his pack. He will sell a few players and we have already seen Hojbjerg come in as well so that saw Skipp fall down the pecking order even further.
“A top Championship loan is a very sensible move. Norwich will be challenging at the top and they play football in the right way. A great move for him.”
