Tottenham Hotspur’s Josh Onomah has become a transfer target for Sheffield Wednesday once again this summer, according to claims by The Star.
The 22-year-old midfielder spent last season on loan at the Owls and it is thought the Championship outfit are considering the possibility of making another move to try and lure him back to Hillsborough.
The England Under-21 international has become somewhat a favourite of Steve Bruce’s as he has played for him during his time at Aston Villa as well and it seems as though discussions have been held.
It is not said whether a deal for Onomah would be on a permanent basis or as a temporary measure, however, any possible switch should benefit all involved regardless of the terms.
The midfielder is at the crucial stage of his career where he needs to be playing regular football and that simply does not appear as though it will happen if he remains at Spurs.
We have a number of options in the central midfield and attacking positions already and the fact that the last time he played for Mauricio Pochettino was over two years ago (The Star) surely cannot bode well for him either.
Onomah may also feel he has unfinished business at Sheffield Wednesday after he saw much of the campaign from the sidelines with a variety of different problems.
He may not have had too many opportunities to showcase what he can provide – he made just 10 starts and five substitute appearances for Wednesday last season, providing three assists in the process (WhoScored), however, it would seem he did enough to warrant interest.
A move back to Sheffield Wednesday could benefit everyone involved, as Onomah may get the regular football he requires, Tottenham will be able to offload him and the Owls could ultimately try and push for promotion to the Premier League.
