Tottenham midfielder Oliver Skipp happy with first weeks at Norwich

Tottenham midfielder Oliver Skipp is determined to make the most of his loan move to Norwich City.

The 19-year-old defensive midfielder was singled out by Daniel Farke for praise after his display in the midweek 2-0 friendly win against Dynamo Dresden.

“It gives us confidence and a sense we are building something. We know it might not be the level of the Championship, but it is a positive to have kept three clean sheets in a row," said Skipp. “The boss has really drilled that into us we have to be solid collectively.

“It is something we are looking to achieve as a group. To press at the right time and press higher.

“You can tell he is really detailed and he has a clear idea of what he wants from every player.

“There are no blurred lines. You know what he wants and it is up to you to go and deliver. The Championship will be really competitive. Like always. But it is an opportunity to show what I can do."
