Tottenham Hotspur are set to receive £15m as they look to sell Josh Onomah in the summer transfer window, per Football Insider.

What’s the word?

Spurs are currently in talks with Huddersfield Town over a deal that will finally see Onomah leave the club.

He has been under contract with the north London club since 2015 but he has played a mere 92 minutes of Premier League football in that time.

Nevertheless, the Terriers, who have sold Philip Billing to AFC Bournemouth, are interested in bringing him in.

The club, the report states, received £15m for Billing and could reinvest that money into the ex-England Under-21 international.

Huddersfield face competition, though, with clubs in England and from abroad enquiring about the 22-year-old.

A massive boon for Levy

This would be fantastic business by Spurs.

Of course, transfer fees have ballooned in recent years and it is remarkably difficult to actually place a value on players.

One imagines, however, that Onomah should not be worth £15m.

He has spent the last two seasons at Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday respectively and he is, by all accounts, a fine Championship player.

Indeed, he made 37 appearances for Villa and 15 for Wednesday and is well-versed in the rigours of the second-tier.

He would probably be a very good signing for Huddersfield but receiving a £15m fee for a player who is nothing more than a Tottenham reserve would be a major boost for chairman Daniel Levy.

Indeed, the Spurs powerbroker has been linked with a number of moves before the transfer deadline, with the likes of Giovani Lo Celso, Ryan Sessegnon and Paulo Dybala all reportedly targets.

Adding £15m to the kitty will surely help those negotiations.
