Josh Onomah has made four appearances for Sheffield Wednesday

Onomah has played four times for the Owls since joining the Championship club on loan from Premier League big boys Tottenham Hotspur on August deadline day.

After coming on as a substitute in the home draw to Stoke City, Onomah was handed his full Wednesday debut at Nottingham Forest. He found it difficult at the City Ground and lost his place in the starting eleven.

But manager Jos Luhukay handed a first-team recall to Onomah against West Bromwich Albion and the Spurs trainee vindicated his selection, producing an eye-catching performance in the middle of the park.

Onomah, who is set to remain at Hillsborough until the end of the campaign, was also praised for his display in the Owls' hard-fought victory over Bristol City before the international break.

Reflecting on his loan spell, Onomah told The Star: "It is going well. Credit to the staff and players. They have made me feel welcome.

"I have started the last two games. I feel as if I have settled in quite well and I'm enjoying my football.

"I was on loan at Aston Villa last season and I was in and out of the team but this time round I hope to cement a place in the team and play as many games as I can. I have to take every game as it comes but I want to gain as much experience as possible."

Onomah, who is currently away on England Under-21 duty, reckons his performances will only get better over the coming weeks and months.

"I still feel there is more to come from me," he said. "I missed out on pre-season so I still feel like I can get fitter.

"Once I get fitter, I feel I like I can impact games a lot by getting goals and assists and that's what I'm looking forward to."
