Aston Villa fans full of praise for latest arrival - 'Quality signing'

We’re bringing in another midfielder’ – Tottenham fans react to speculation attacker joining Aston Villa

Last night's rumors that suggested Aston Villa were about to take Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Josh Onomah on loan turned out to be accurate.

The 20-year-old midfielder has been a fringe player for Mauricio Pochettino's first-team squad for the past two seasons, but the former Southampton and Espanyol boss feels that Onomah will have a greater chance of developing elsewhere.

He was also an important member of England's Under-20 World Cup winning squad and also won the European Under-17 Championship with his country in 2014.

He played 12 times for Spurs last season, including a Champions League appearance as a substitute against Bayer Leverkusen.

Onomah progressed through Tottenham's youth academy before being promoted to senior level in 2015 and made his debut in an FA Cup third round match against Burnley the same year.




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. Coming days after Jack Grealish was ruled out for months, it appears he has been signed as an attacking midfielder who can destroy opposition defences.

The 20-year-old offers an alternative to Ahmed Elmohamady, Andre Green and Albert Adomah in the wide areas and could also play centrally if required.

Onomah and the rest of Villa's new arrivals could make their debut this weekend, when Bruce's side welcome Hull City to Villa Park in Saturday's teatime kick-off.

Villa will be aiming to finish in the top six of the Championship this season, and the youngster could prove to be a very shrewd signing for Steve Bruce's side.
