Tottenham player now ‘certain’ to miss Aston Villa game in big injury blow

by Vibecity



Oliver Skipp’s proposed return to action has suffered a fresh blow after the midfielder felt discomfort on his return to outdoor training.With Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur entering the crucial run-in phase of the season and chasing the all important fourth Champions League spot, the return of the England Under-21 international would have been a timely boost.However, according to the Evening Standard, the 21-year-old trained individually on the grass on Monday and Tuesday, but was set to be back indoors today after reporting soreness in his pelvis.The negative update comes after Conte said only last week that Skipp was “very, very close” to returning from a long-term pelvic injury, which has ruled him out since late January.Photo by Tottenham Hotspur FC/Tottenham Hotspur FC via Getty ImagesHITC Sport’s First New Signing REVEALEDTottenham’s number 29 has missed the last 10 Premier League games, but the Italian was hopeful that he could be back in full training by the end of this week.Skipp’s setback will likely rule him out of Saturday’s visit to Aston Villa and a timescale on his return to the side remains unclear.Despite not being any closer to a return to getting back out on the pitch, Skipp is close to committing his long-term future to the north London side by signing a new four-year deal.The new deal will also include the option of a further year which would be automatically triggered if the midfielder makes a certain amount of appearances.Photo by Tottenham Hotspur FC/Tottenham Hotspur FC via Getty ImagesSkipp spent last season on loan in the Championship with Norwich City, who secured promotion to the Premier League, before returning to Spurs and breaking into the first team under Nuno Espirito Santo.The man who has been at the club since the age of five has continued to impress under former Chelsea boss Conte, but he was advised to rest by specialists due to the accumulation of so many games played over the last year.When Oliver Skipp does eventually make his return, he will be tasked with breaking up the Pierre-Emile Höjbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur partnership who have impressed in his absence.
