Aston Villa want to sign on-loan midfielder Josh Onomah permanently from Tottenham, according to Birmingham Mail.
The 20-year-old joined Villa on a season-long loan in August. He has made 16 appearances so far, scoring twice.
Spurs initially had high hopes for Onomah, seeing him as the next player from the academy to eventually become a first team regular.
But Mauricio Pochettino allowed him to leave on loan in the summer when it became clear he wouldn’t get enough game time.
Birmingham Mail suggests Villa don’t have the funds to buy him in January, but they could make a move for him at the end of the season if they are promoted to the Premier League.
