Oliver Skipp, the Tottenham Hotspur player on-loan at Norwich City, left the field of play in the closing stages of their Championship game against Reading over the weekend.

Skipp joined Norwich at the start of the season as the Canaries had been relegated from the Premier League and hoped to bounce straight back up.

His season has been almost perfect for the youngster, with regular first-team football, the English midfielder took full advantage of the opportunity.

Skipp left the field after injuring his foot just after the Canaries used all their substitutions on Saturday, however, joined in the title celebrations with a protective boot on his ankle.

Metatarsal Injury

The Canaries confirmed his injury in an injury update on Wednesday where they said: “Skipp, meanwhile, has undergone surgery after scans revealed a fractured metatarsal in his right foot following a late challenge in the Reading fixture.”

However, the disappointment of the injury will not hold the midfielder back as he is set to shine and have a successful career with his parent club.

The youngster has featured 47 times for City over the course of the season and has impressed massively, making 45 appearances in the league and being an integral part of the team.

He scored his first senior goal and only goal for the club in a win over Birmingham City in February.

Championship Title Winner

As well as this, Skipp was awarded third in the club’s recent Player of the Season awards.

After fracturing his metatarsal, he underwent surgery to repair the injury and will return to his parent club, where he will recover and is expected to return to training during the pre-season period.

Skipp has made 23 appearances for Spurs making two assists. Additionally, the youngster has made 25 appearances for the England U16s, U18s and U21s.

Hopeful of a long career ahead of him, Spurs fans will be very excited to have him back at their club after a disappointing season for the team and an incredible growing period for the youngster.
