Trio of clubs in for Onomah

England Under-20’s World Cup glory has lead to a resurgence among Tottenham Hotspur fans in the almost forgotten-man Josh Onomah.

The midfielder only made three starts for Tottenham last season and twelve appearances in total with Harry Winks taking the limelight as the midfield prospect who has shown that he is capable of slotting into the team.

Onomah’s performances for England have cast him back into the spotlight and paper talk now claims that he is wanted by a trio of clubs on loan for the new season.

The Sun claim that Celtic, Brighton and Huddersfield are all keen to give the midfielder the opportunity to play regular football next season.  Personally, I would discount Celtic from the race, we need to see if Onomah can cut it in the Premier League rather than in Scotland where an average player can look like Messi.

Either Brighton or Huddersfield could be a good fit.  With former Spur Chris Hughton in charge of the Seagulls and David Wagner’s ever-growing reputation at Huddersfield, I’m sure he would get a fair crack.

Personally, I haven’t seen enough from Onomah in a Spurs shirt to date to say that he has the potential to be able to break into our side.  Regardless of what happens, he needs regular football and I cannot see that happening at Tottenham this upcoming season.

Do you think Onomah can make it at Spurs?  Have your say below

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. The likelihood of him breaking into the first team are slum, one decent junior tournament won’t change that. A premier league loan would aid his development for sure

    • I’m not really sure what you base the better than Winks comment on but I do think he looks to be a player of decent potential. I personally think Winks had a tremendous season before getting injured as his willingness to work non stop and a forward passing mentality were just what we needed from him.
      Watching Onamah in the World Cup final particularly showed that he has similar qualities to Winks in both of those attributes but like Larry B I do think he needs to get up to speed with the Premiership and a loan move this coming season, should make or break him in that regard. I personally hope it makes him.

  2. He’s not anywhere near as good as Winks, has had plenty of chances and done nothing as yet. Had a stinker vs. Liverpool.

  3. He’s good, but the game’s a little quick for him at this stage. In the U20 WC he looked special because there was much more space and time. It’ll take a while, but he’s for real. The Brighton suggestion is a good one, however imo Fulham would be a perfect loan destination. After they lose Cairney they’re gonna need help in central midfield.
