Football Insider has claimed that Sheffield Wednesday are in talks over a permanent move for Spurs midfielder Josh Onomah, who endured a difficult loan spell at Hillsborough last season.
Talks are taking place between Sheffield Wednesday and Champions League finalists Spurs over a permanent deal for midfielder Josh Onomah, Football Insider has reported.
Onomah only played 15 times during a difficult loan spell with Sheffield Wednesday, but Owls boss Steve Bruce is a known fan of the midfielder and is keen on another reunion with Onomah this summer. Bruce first signed Onomah when in charge of Aston Villa in 2017 and he is keen to bring him back once again this summer.
The 22-year-old is one of Bruce’s number one targets this summer and he is keen to bring in some new players to help improve on their 12th place finish by challenging for promotion in the 2019/20 season.
Onomah made his first-team debut for Spurs in the FA Cup 3rd round of 2015, making a substitute appearance against Burnley. He featured 19 times for the club next season but fell down the pecking order in the 2016/17 season, playing 12 times with the majority coming off the bench.
Onomah joined Aston Villa on loan for the 2017/18 season under Steve Bruce, playing 37 times over the course of the season as Villa were defeated in the Championship play-off final.
The midfielder has fallen down the pecking order with Spurs over recent years and could be set for a move away from the club this summer in a bid to settle down with a new club permanently. Steve Bruce will be hoping the two clubs can come to an agreement over a permanent deal to allow Onomah to show more than he could in his injury-plagued spell last season.
