Umm ok - can I ask who is he and where in Midfield does he play ??

I am not a fan of giving other teams players experience but if he gets us to the promised land then fine

Can play anywhere in midfield. Prefers to play box to box, but has been stationed out wide when he's made the Tottingham first team.

Definitely a fan of this deal. We need attacking and creative options with Jack out so this is a good move to fill that gap. He's just won the U20s with England, unlikely to break into the Spurs team anytime soon unless he's REALLY good. In which case we'd see/benefit from it this year. So there's a chance we could make it permanent or at least extend by a year if we do well with him in the team.

We seem to be acting shrewdly and swiftly in the transfer market this summer, which is very welcome and very un-Villa-like...

He is bound to be a bruiser.  One for the medical students and the hypochondriacs.

Never heard of him, never seen him play I just hope he really does improve our midfield.

My mom asked me if I know who has just joined Villa on loan, I said "Onomah' and she said "ok, i'll ask your dad".

Potentially very good signing still think we need a target man up front couldn't they have loaned us harry Kane for a bit

My fear is Bruce will think he's a winger when he looks more comfortable as a defensive midfielder - at best a box to box central midfielder. Time will tell.

Is miles better than any other midfielder @ the club and he should become a permanent fixture in the 1st team all season
