Onomah living the dream


Josh Onomah has promised there is more to come from both him and Villa after reflecting on a “dream” year for club and country according to an article by Midlands publication Express and Star.

The the article tells of our on loan 20-year-old netting his third Aston Villa goal of the season in Tuesday’s 2-1 win over Sunderland, a victory which lifted Villa to fourth in the Championship.

The article adds that Onomah has impressed after joining on a season-long loan from Hotspur Way, and he’s continued his fine form which saw him help England win the under-20s World Cup during the summer.

It adds that the attacking midfielder has since made his international bow at under-21 level and is now out to continue his personal success story by helping Villa win promotion.

“It’s been like a dream, really,” said Onomah. “From winning the World Cup, it had never been done before with the under-20s, to scoring for the under-21s as well, it was a massive moment for me.
“I just have to keep on going. I just have to carry on in this positive mood.

Onomah added “The people around me will keep me grounded. The experienced players here (at Villa), they keep me level headed and remind me I have not reached where I want to reach yet.”

The article tells of Onomah’s burgeoning partnership with Villa’s teenage striker Keinan Davis has been one of the keys to the Villa’s climb up the table and that his goal against Sunderland was the first he has scored at Villa Park and made more special by the fact it came in front of the Holte End.

Onomah added “I am grateful for scoring my first goal in front of the Holte. It had been a long time coming and I was buzzing to finally get it,” he said. “It was a proud moment for me and my family.
“The fans were brilliant, singing my name. Moments like that don’t come around too often. Hopefully it’s the first of many.

Onomah concludes: “From a team perspective I thought we held it down and stuck to the game plan. Credit to Sunderland, they made it difficult for us. But we stuck at it and saw out the win.”

Onomah’s long-term ambition remains breaking into a Tottenham team currently riding high in the Premier League and in Europe.
