The 21-year-old spent last season with Aston Villa on loan. However, the club failed to achieve promotion to the Premier League after losing in the playoff final.
Football.london quoted Pochettino as the manager highlighted how Onomah’s injury prevented the Englishman from taking part in pre-season.
“We’re a bit disappointed about Josh because he was injured in the summer and could not play one game and train with the first team through the whole pre-season.”
Pochettino further claimed that the club could send him out to gain more playing time this season.
“He’s a little bit behind the rest but we’re working and I’m going to decide if he’s a player that can stay with us or maybe if we believe he can play more, to find maybe some alternative for him to play more than last season. But to try for him to be more involved than he was last season at Aston Villa.”
A loan deal would certainly be great for the club and the player but we should include a clause that guarantees a lot of playing time for the 21-year-old.
Onomah would not receive regular first-team minutes at Spurs and hopefully, his next stint will be more successful than the one with Villa last season.
