Ahead of Sheffield Wednesday's return to Championship action this weekend, Tottenham loanee Josh Onomah has suggested, in comments reported by the Sheffield Star, that he is still not yet fully up to speed at Hillsborough but feels that he is getting closer.
Onomah joined the Owls on loan for the season on transfer deadline day and has only just managed to force his way into Jos Luhukay's starting lineup, having played almost every minute of Wednesday's last two games.
And while the young midfielder is still awaiting his first goal for the Owls, he has provided glimpses of his quality by contributing an assist against West Brom and Bristol City.
The signs suggest that Onomah is really finding his feet with Wednesday. But he insisted that he feels that there is a lot more to come after joining the club late in the summer.
"I still feel there is more to come from me," he said, as reported by the Sheffield Star. "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."
It is arguably a crucial season for Onomah as he looks to prove that he can become a player that Tottenham need to keep hold of in the future.
Having struggled to shine at Aston Villa last season, he cannot afford to endure another underwhelming spell in the second tier if he wants to show that he can make the grade with Spurs.
Intriguingly however, Onomah's performances just before the international break hint that he could go on and prove a point to Mauricio Pochettino during the remainder of his loan spell.
