I think he'll be better off in an environment where he gets game time competitively and the chance to be an important figure in the first team. Fulham, Huddersfield perhaps, Norwich would be a great move.Think this pre-season will be the making of Skipp. His performance in the last game of the season against Everton showed that he felt more at ease with his teammates and the pressure of mens football. I hope we avoid getting Ceballos, only to allow Skipp the chance to feature for us. Having Ndombele, Winks, Sissoko, Skipp, Lo Celso (hopefully)and Dier would be a good mix of CMs/DMs in a 3 man midfield. Crazy to think that he's still on 18 and has a wonderful array of experienced CM's to learn from and train with. Wouldn't surprise me if we announce a contract extension for Skipp before they team travels out to Singapore.
I really like him I think he has everything needed to become an important HG squad player. A little rough around the edges and gangly but I like that in him. Skippy has a very promising future but I'd like to see him get genuine minutes this season.
