Manager admits move hasn’t worked for club or midfielder

Josh Onomah has had an extremely disappointing season which has been disrupted by multiple injuries.

After impressing during his loan spell at Aston Villa last season, the midfielder was loaned out to Sheffield Wednesday this term.

However, Onomah has barely played for the Owls since the start of the season due to injury troubles. In fact, the 21-year-old has only featured once since Steve Bruce took charge of the club in January.

The England U21 international suffered a hamstring problem and returned to Spurs for treatment. He has now completed his recovery and is back training with the first team at Sheffield Wednesday.

Steve Bruce who managed Onomah at Aston Villa last season said that he hopes to have the midfielder available soon, and admitted that the loan spell hasn’t gone as well as the club would have hoped so far.

Speaking to Sheffield Wednesday’s official Facebook page, Bruce said, “He won’t be available for Saturday. We’re hoping that he will be available for Stoke in a couple of weeks.

“And it’ll be good to see Josh back. He played very, very well for me at Aston Villa. And it’s fair to say with the number of appearances he’s made here, it hasn’t gone as well as either party would like.

“But I’m a big admirer of Josh and I’m pleased that he’s up and running and hopefully he’ll have some part to play in the next eight games.”
