It was confirmed yesterday that midfielder Josh Onomah completed a permanent switch to Fulham as a part of the deal that saw Ryan Sessegnon head the other way (Fulham official).
Onomah has penned a three-year deal with the Championship club which includes the option of a further twelve-month extension.
The England Under-21 international came through the ranks at Spurs and made 32 first-team appearances for the club, scoring on one occasion.
Great things were expected of the 22-year-old at Tottenham until a couple of years ago but he failed to impress during his loan spells with Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday over the past two seasons.
The club has subsequently decided to let the youngster leave on a permanent basis this time around.
After finally sealing a permanent move away from the club, the midfielder spoke of his delight to have signed for the Cottagers.
Speaking to Fulham’s official website, Onomah said: “I’m over the moon. It’s a proud moment for me and my family and I’m looking forward to the new challenge.
“I know the Gaffer and Matt Wells so I’m looking forward to working under them, getting started, and making a huge impact here.”

It’s a pity things never worked out for Onomah at Tottenham as he clearly had the talented needed to make it at the top level. This once again proves that young players need so much more than just raw talent to be able to develop into top players.
