Tottenham midfielder Oliver Skipp has revealed that the pelvic problem currently keeping him out of action has been affecting him for many month.

The midfielder, who come through the ranks at Tottenham, signed a new five-year deal on Wednesday to keep him with the club until 2027.

Skipp told the club’s official website about the new deal: “You would never have thought that that young boy walking through at six or seven and then signing at U9s, you’d get to this stage so I’m delighted to sign this new deal.

“It’s something I’m very grateful for. I think it means a lot when you’ve grown up at this club. My whole family support the club and it means a lot when you step out in front of the crowd.

“I’ve missed that feeling obviously in the last few months. That’s something I’m pushing to feel that again.”

Skipp admitted the injury had been plaguing him for many months and that he was initially playing through pain, hoping that the problem would dissipate.

“I don’t know if you remember the third or fourth game of the season, with England, I came back and I think it was the Crystal Palace game so it dates quite far back in terms of I’ve been having a problem, but I’ve been managing to get through it.” He said.

“Come the international break I had an injection which other players have had in the past and the hope was that the original pain would go and that’s not been the case.

“There’s been various times when I’ve felt like I was getting there but with the nature of this injury, it hasn’t materialised that I’ve come back yet. It’s been a really frustrating time for me. The most difficult part has been the unknown.

“When I was out before you knew you had a set time, two months etc, but with this one, it was just about being patient and it’s something that happens in football careers and I’ll definitely make sure that when I’m back I’ll be right.”

There has been no expected date of return for Oliver Skipp yet, with the midfielder continuing to recover from his injury problem according to The Athletic’s Charlie Eccleshare
