According to a report in Football Insider, Sheffield Wednesday are confident of striking a deal with Tottenham Hotspur to sign Joshua Onomah on a permanent basis.

The same publication reported in May that Wednesday had begun negotiating with Spurs over a permanent deal for the 22-year-old.

The midfielder had a disappointing season on loan with the Owls has he suffered multiple injuries and spent a considerable amount of time on the sidelines. In fact, Onomah only made 15 appearances in the Championship last season, registering 3 assists.


However, Wednesday manager Steve Bruce, who also managed Onomah at Aston Villa the previous season during his loan spell in the Midlands, is reportedly keen on signing the central midfielder on a permanent transfer.

The report claims that the England Under-21 international is also keen to link up with Bruce again and that the Lilywhites will give a green light to the move as the youngster only has two years left on his contract.

It would be a real shame if Onomah ends up being sold, as great things were expected off him a couple of seasons ago. However, the 22-year-old has now reached an age where he ought to be playing regularly, and he certainly doesn’t look anywhere close to competing for a first-team spot at Spurs.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Were great things really expected from him, or were we just naively optimistic as with Carroll, Bostock, Livermore, Parrett etc.
