Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Josh Onomah has been ruled out for a month with another hamstring problem.

Onomah joined Wednesday on a season-long loan from Tottenham at the beginning of the season and has made 12 Championship appearances so far this term, providing three assists but failing to score.

The midfielder recently returned from a lay-off with a hamstring injury but has now suffered a similar strain.

And new Wednesday manager Steve Bruce has confirmed Onomah could miss more than a month of action.

“Josh unfortunately strained his hamstring in the last minute of the Ipswich game,” Bruce said (via the Yorkshire Post).

“I would certainly say he will be out for three to four weeks at least. It is a blow for the kid. When you are just over a hamstring injury and you nick the other one, there is nothing worse as a footballer.”

The 21-year-old began to break into the Spurs first team during the 2015/16 campaign but Mauricio Pochettino has struggled to find a place for him in the squad in the last two seasons.

Onomah spent the previous campaign on loan at Aston Villa but failed to secure promotion to the Premier League at the final hurdle.

He has now been reunited with his manager from last season, and Tottenham will be hoping the youngster’s game time improves when he returns from his latest lay-off.
