Tottenham Hotspur youngster Josh Onomah is getting the chance to show what he can do in pre-season, as he bids to force his way into the club's first ream plans.
Onomah made his debut for the club last season as a substitute in the FA Cup at just 17, and is very highly regarded at the club.
The attacking midfielder is a regular for the under-21 side and captained the FA Youth Cup team to the semi-finals of the competition.
The Sun had reported last week that Onomah was a transfer target for Liverpool, Manchester City, and Chelsea, with just one year remaining on his £800-per-week youth contract. The Sun subsequently reported Spurs had offered him a new deal.
Onomah is not the only promising talent hoping to make an impact in pre-season, for he was joined in training by new signing Dele Alli, and returning loan star Tom Carroll.
Competition for places is increasing for the club, and they are fortunate to be blessed with exciting young players, set to compete with Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb for places.
It is little wonder Maurico Pochettino feels comfortable letting Benjamin Stambouli leaving after just one season at the club, with the talent already being adjudged to be near capable of stepping in.
