Football Insider has claimed that Championship side Sheffield Wednesday are becoming increasingly confident that they can complete a permanent deal to sign midfielder Josh Onomah this summer.
It was reported here on The72 earlier this summer that Sheffield Wednesday were looking to bring back Spurs midfielder Josh Onomah on a permanent basis after his loan spell at Hillsborough came to an end upon the climax of the 2018/19 season.
And, despite Onomah struggling with injury problems over the course of his time at Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday, Owls boss Steve Bruce is a big fan of the 22-year-old midfielder and is determined to link up with him once again – and this time, for good.
The two clubs are yet to come to an agreement over a permanent deal, but it is said that a “multi-million” transfer is in the offing, with Spurs willing to offload and the Owls poised to buy. Onomah only played 15 times during a difficult loan spell with Sheffield Wednesday and could be set to that appearance total if a proposed deal goes through.
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 first played under Steve Bruce during his time on loan at Aston Villa in the 2017/18 season, playing 37 times over the course of the campaign as Villa were defeated in the Championship play-off final.
It will be interesting to see if a deal develops for Onomah to return to Wednesday. But, with all parties seemingly keen for the deal to go through, Bruce will be hoping a deal can progress quickly with preparation for the new season well underway.
