Fulham on verge of striking deal for Premier League midfielder

Fulham are close to signing Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Josh Onomah.

If Ryan Sessegnon’s expected departure to Spurs goes through today then Onomah will go to Craven Cottage as part of the deal, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke on Twitter.

The Cottagers have made some impressive coups so far in the transfer window and look set to be busy up until the deadline today. The likes of Ivan Caveleiro, Anthony Knockaert and Harry Arter have joined the London side so far.

Onomah, who is 22 years-old, was left out of Tottenham’s pre-season tour to Asia and could be next through the door for the Whites.

He was linked with a permanent switch to Championship side Sheffield Wednesday but that deal stalled after Steve Bruce’s departure to Newcastle United last month.

Onomah started his career at Spurs and rose up through the youth ranks there. He has represented England at all youth levels from U16 to U21.

He made his first-team debut in January 2015 in an FA Cup tie against Burnley at White Hart Lane. He has since made 31 more appearances for the last seasons’ Champions League finalists.

He spent the 2017/18 season on loan in the Championship with Aston Villa and played 37 games for them in all competitions, scoring four assists. He played the Midland side getting to the Play-Off final that year, only to lose to Fulham.

Onomah then spent last year at Sheffield Wednesday but looks set to remain in London now with Fulham.
