Sheffield Wednesday announced the signing of Josh Onomah on loan from Tottenham on deadline day and fans of the Owls were buzzing with what seems to be a coup for the South Yorkshire side.
The 21-year-old is a Spurs academy graduate who has made an impressive 32 appearances for the North London club. He can play on either wing, although his best position seems to be in an attacking midfield role.

Onomah’s first experience of the Championship came during a season-long loan spell with Aston Villa in the last campaign, where he managed just four goals and three assists, but Wednesday fans will hoping this return improves with experience.
The London-born youngster is clearly a talent and has played for each England youth side from the U16s to the U21s. He was also a member of the Young Lions’ U20 side who were victorious at the World Cup in 2017, beating Venezuela 1-0 in the final.
Check out some of the best tweets from Wednesday fans in reaction to Onomah’s arrival below.
Great player well done Wednesday

Not a single link to him anywhere. Just shows that Jos and DC will always do their business in private. Highly rated by Spurs. Welcome to S6

Very pleasantly surprised by the Josh Onomah signing, exactly what we've been desperate for in midfield for many years. Happy with that #swfc

Not going to lie, don't know much about Hector. A player loaned out with no future at his parent club as much as he is must get fed up. But extra defensive bodies are a must. Onomah is a top signing who has impressed me before. #swfc

That's a really solid loan signing by #swfc. Onomah has Championship experience playing the season at Villa last year. Clearly got talent having played in every England age group from u16s to u21s. Will add legs to the midfield. Happy with that!

Onomah will give us the engine in midfield we desperately need. Reach has done a job there, but it’s not his natural position. Will complement Bannan & Pelupessy nicely. Now for that centre half… #swfc
