Aston Villa may have narrowly missed out on a Premier League promotion as Fulham beat them 1-0 but Tottenham fans have a reason to rejoice. Josh Onomah, one of our promising attacking midfielders, spent the previous season on loan at the Championship outfit and although he could not get them back to the English top-flight, he did play a key role in most of their success.
Having appeared 37 times across competitions for the Villans, Onomah managed to contribute a total of 4 goals and 3 assists. As per Squawka, he also created 29 chances for the club in 31 Championship games, which is quite a decent number.
“The experience here has been excellent. I’ve learned a lot. There’s been a few ups and downs and I’ve just got to get my head around this result and come back for pre-season and start again.”
The youngster then went on to mention that the experience he gained with Villa has taught him a lot and thanked Steve Bruce for all the lessons. Onomah also revealed that Tottenham continued monitoring his performances to ensure everything was fine with him.
The midfielder was asked about his future plans and he said:
“I just want to get back to Spurs and make the most of my time there and see if I can break through. I need to take it step by step. I’m looking forward to the new stadium as well. It should be good. It’s exciting times.
“They’ve done well securing that top four spot and playing in the Champions League. From the start of every season, we look to win trophies and hopefully we can do that next season.”
Well, it is great to see the youngster’s determination shine through. A player like him could prove to be crucial for us next term since we must look to make a solid title challenge for the Premier League. Furthermore, with the added experience, it will be interesting to see if Mauricio Pochettino provides him with first-team opportunities.
Regardless, added depth in the midfield department is always welcome and let’s hope Onomah is able to achieve his goal of breaking into the first-team.
