The future of Josh Onomah may have just taken another twist

Josh Onomah has become somewhat of a forgotten figure at Tottenham Hotspur over the past two seasons.

The midfielder has gone in our opinion from being sent out on loan to further his footballing experience with the aim of coming back to North London to push for a place in Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

However, it has not exactly worked out to plan.  Whilst Onomah spent the 2017/18 season on loan at Aston Villa and featured regularly, his spell at Sheffield Wednesday last season was marred by injury problems.

Back at Tottenham, Harry Winks has continued to flourish and certainly made the most of the opportunity to play regularly alongside Moussa Sissoko due to the departure of Mousa Dembele along with injuries to Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama.

Fellow academy product Oliver Skipp has also had a taste of first-team action in the heart of the Spurs midfield and Onomah’s chances will be further affected by the arrival of club record signing Tanguy Ndombele.

Onomah had been linked with a potential return to Sheffield Wednesday the Owls already have previously said to have made contact with Spurs regarding a move to Hillsborough (The Star).

Wednesday manager Steve Bruce is said to be a big admirer of Onomah having also worked with him at Aston Villa, however, any possible chance of a return to the Championship side may have taken a significant blow with the expectation that Bruce is set to be named as the new manager of Newcastle United (Chronicle).

Where does this leave Onomah?  Whether Bruce would see him as a potential recruit to the Magpies will remain to be seen, yet it seems like his time at Spurs could be coming to an end.
