TOTTENHAM is ready to offer Oliver Skipp an improved deal.
The England Under-21 midfielder only signed a four-year extension last summer.
But Spurs want to reward him for emerging as a regular first-team player under new boss Nuno Espirito Santo.
The new contract is believed to last until 2025 and is expected to increase Skipp’s salary from around £ 25,000 per week to between £ 35,000 and £ 40,000.
Skipp spent last season on league loan with Norwich and was one of the stars of the Canaries’ return to the Premier League as champions.
Norwich wanted a permanent deal, but Spurs have always enjoyed the midfielder.
Skipp has started all four of Tottenham’s Premier League games so far this quarter and is likely to retain his place for today’s Chelsea clash.

He keeps England international Harry Winks, 25, out of the squad.
Spurs ‘faith in Skipp is such that they were ready to listen to Winks’ offers this summer.
But neither club was ready to hit his £ 40million valuation.
