Tottenham Hotspur Academy graduate Josh Onomah was at one time quite highly rated by the club but when the 22-year-old got his first team chance, it’s not unfair to say he struggled and he didn’t really seize his moment in a way that others have done in recent times.
His last appearance for Spurs came in the 4-0 victory over Watford in our Premier League clash back in the 2016/17 campaign at White Hart Lane in April, and the next season saw him loaned out to Aston Villa.
He had a mixed year for Steve Bruce with niggles hitting, but he did make 23 starts and 14 substitute showings according to Soccerbase and he did contribute four goals and then next season he headed to Sheffield Wednesday where he ultimately teamed up once again with former manager Bruce when he arrived at Hillsborough.
Injuries again hit and he was restricted to only ten starts and five substitute showings, but the former Manchester United centre-half continues to be a big fan of the lad.
His time at White Hart Lane is clearly up though and reports were circulating at the end of the week that Wednesday were now confident that a permanent transfer could be struck with Spurs over the player.
The report doesn’t contain much in the shape of details but they never do at this time of year do they, but the claim is a ‘multi-million-pound fee’ which I can only imagine is not going to be more than £2million given his more recent spate of injury problems.
Few would doubt this one would go through before deadline day and given Bruce more than seems to like him, it could be the perfect chance for him to get himself back on track if he can remain injury free.
