Aston Villa have had a decent start to their season in the Championship under the tutelage of Steve Bruce. The Villans have collected 22 points from their 13 outings in the English second division and after luring some notable players like John Terry, Robert Snodgrass and Glenn Whelan to the Villa Park during the summer transfer window, they appear to be a side capable of challenging for a promotional spot as the player have gelled together quite well.

One of their summer signings who has caught a lot of attention of Bruce, in particular, is Tottenham Hotspur’s loanee Josh Onomah. Onomah has had a very riveting season so far in the Championship, having banged a couple of goals in 12 appearances for the Lions.

In Aston Villa’s 2-1 win at home against Fulham last weekend, the 20-year-old excelled meticulously and the manager has stated that he is even willing to break the bank to sign him permanently, for he is indeed a quality player.

Onomah emerged through the youth ranks of Spurs and is a highly rated starlet at the North London based club. He is contracted with Mauricio Pochettino’s outfit until 2021 for obvious reasons. Owing the plethora of stars in the ranks of the Lilywhites, it would make complete sense if the attacking midfielder also personally intends to make the move into a permanent one in order to get more game time under his belt and blossom to his utmost potential.

His dribbling skills and physicality are his strongest suits, with his vision, movements and shrewd passing range makes him an appealing youngster. Onomah is fast and he has been showcasing exemplary work-rate week in and week out whilst plying his trade for the Villans.

Besides, he is someone who constantly looks to find the back of the net, attempts to knit the side together as a unit in the find, breaks up the defence of the opposition and no wonder why his stocks are so highly rated.

The factor of age is by his side, which implies that the English U21 has plenty of time to brush himself and become a fearsome package within a few seasons. Pochettino belongs to the class of managers who tend to work with the starlets and thus, it might not be easy for Bruce to sign him anytime soon. Nonetheless, Onomah has shown a lot of calibre already for Aston Villa should actually leave no stone unturned to sign him on a permanent deal.
