Tottenham midfielder not eyeing exit – ‘I just want to get back to Spurs’

Tottenham Hotspur youngster Josh Onomah has stated that he is looking forward to getting back to the North London club after his season-long loan at Aston Villa.

The youth-team graduate was unlikely to feature for Mauricio Pochettino’s men in 2017-18 due to the sheer quality in front of him in the pecking order and had a relatively positive campaign in the Championship.

Onomah will now return to Tottenham and hope to make an impact, with the gifted midfielder admitting that he is looking forward to pre-season with the club.

“I just want to get back to Spurs and make the most of my time there and see if I can break through,” the Spurs starlet told Football London.

“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.”

Onomah is part of a generation of excellent young players to come through the ranks at Tottenham and looks like a player with a bright future in the game.

That said, breaking into the Spurs first-team thinking will surely be a step too far for the 21-year-old next season.

Since leaving Tottenham last summer, the club have signed Lucas Moura and there are likely to be a host of new faces arrive at the club before the start of the new Premier League season.

With Onomah living in Jack Grealish’s shadow at Villa and having international superstars for competition back at Spurs, his short-term future looks decidedly unclear.
