Tottenham confirm Josh Onomah loan to Aston Villa, new contract

Tottenham midfielder Josh Onomah has signed a new four-year deal and joined Aston Villa on a season-long loan.

The England Under-20 World Cup victor has been touted for a bright future but only made 12 appearances in all competitions for the Spurs first team last season.

Onomah, who was part of the England Under-20 squad that won the World Cup during the summer, has made 32 appearances for Spurs since making his debut in 2015 during a FA Cup tie against Burnley.

Pochettino was initially hesitant to allow Onomah at the centre of the field last season and this loan move to Villa may allow the manager to gauge the players abilities as he will likely be playing for the Villains on a regular basis.

England youth global Onomah featured 10 times for Tottenham last season but made just five substitute appearances in the Premier League as he fell behind fellow academy graduate Harry Winks in the pecking order.

But there's more, and it's important if you are a fan of Joshy: at the same time, the club also announced that Onomah has signed a new contract that will keep him a Tottenham player through 2020-21.

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.

"I know that promotion is the aim and I am here to help us achieve that".
