Norwich City are resigned to not having Oliver Skipp back for their Premier League return.
Football.London reports new Spurs boss Nuno believes he can rapidly progress his development after an outstanding campaign at Carrow Road.
City have made little secret of their desire to re-sign the 20-year-old after his impressive performances in their Championship title win last season. Sporting director Stuart Webber admitted they would be prepared to wait until the final minute of the transfer window to sign Skipp if they had to.
Skipp is currently recovering from a metatarsal fracture but is reportedly a major part of the Portuguese coach's plan this season.
Meanwhile, Bournemouth midfielder Philip Billing is also a major target for the City, with Webber pressing ahead with signing another midfield option irrespective if they manage to convince Spurs to send Skipp out on loan for another season, reports the Pink'Un.
