Skipp gets top marks from Tettey
Norwich City midfielder Alex Tettey has admitted he has been shocked by Oliver Skipp’s performance levels this season.
Skipp moved to the Canaries in August on a season-long loan deal and has played a big part in Daniel Farke’s side’s title-winning campaign.
Tettey, when asked what mark he would give the Tottenham ace for his efforts at Carrow Road, told the Eastern Daily Press : “There’s one mark he gets from me and that’s A+++.
“There’s not much to say, I don’t know how you can be 20 and play with the maturity and quality that he does.
“In any team, you need a guy like that. He’s the modern type player that you need. He is an incredible young footballer with a bright future ahead of him. He is a nice guy as well.”

Sugar reveals Levy conversation
Lord Alan Sugar has revealed he spoke to Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy about the proposed European Super League idea.
Spurs were one of six Premier League clubs to have signed a letter of intent to join the ‘breakaway’ league, that caused nationwide uproar from supporters.
They did pull out, however, and Sugar revealed his conversation with Levy about the idea.
“I’m delighted that all of the [Premier League] clubs pulled back,” said the former Spurs chairman when speaking on White and Jordan on talkSPORT on Wednesday.
“Tottenham, my club, what they did was say, ‘hold on a minute, include us, please. We’re a big club, we want to come in, so don’t just leave it as the Manchester clubs, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal, we want to come in’.
“I spoke to Daniel Levy and I said to him, ‘Daniel, this is not a good idea. You have an opportunity here of being magnanimous and pulling out and saying the fans don’t want it, so we’re going to come out’.”
