Aston Villa Confirm Loan Signing of Tottenham Youngster and Midfielder Josh Onomah


Tottenham Hotspur midfield prodigy Joshua Onomah has joined Championship outfit Aston Villa on a season-long loan and committed his future to the north Londoners in the process by signing a new long-term contract with Mauricio Pochettino's side.

The central midfielder has a great deal of competition in his position and Mauricio Pochettino has chose to allow the 20-year-old to go out and gain experience in the Championship.

Onomah has made 32 senior appearances for Spurs during his career, including 13 in the Premier League, although all of those have come as a substitute.

He becomes Villa's second loan signing of the summer, following Sam Johnstone's decision to return on a season-long loan from Manchester United.

The 20-year-old midfielder has made 32 appearances for Spurs, majority as a substitute, and was part of the England team that won the U20 World Cup this summer.


Onomah is Bruce's sixth signing, following Johnstone, John Terry, Chris Samba, Glenn Whelan and Ahmed Elmohamady through the door.

This is the first time that the 20-year-old midfielder has been sent out on loan to another club by Spurs.

With 21-year-old Jack Grealish expected to be out of action for the first few months of the season due to kidney damage, Onomah could be asked to fill in for the winger, having regularly played out wide under Pochettino.

Aston Villa fans: What do you think Josh Onomah will bring to your side?

Speaking ahead of Villa's season opener at home to Hull City on Saturday, the Englishman spoke of his determination to hit the ground running and impress manager Steve Bruce. Let us know your thoughts.
