Aston Villa loanee Josh Onomah says he wants to return to parent club Tottenham at the end of the season.
The 20-year-old attacking midfielder is currently on a season-long loan at Villa Park from Spurs and appears to have ruled out a permanent move to the Championship club.
“Obviously I want to do well here and help Villa get promoted, then go back to my parent club and get back in the team,” he said, as quoted by the Daily Express.
The highly-rated youngster scored his third Championship goal of the season in Tuesday’s 2-1 home win over Sunderland and has made 18 appearances for the club this campaign.
He signed a long-term contract extension with Spurs before joining Villa in the summer.
Villa boss Steve Bruce has previously claimed he will “break the bank” to sign the youngster on a full-time deal, but Onomah has his sights set on becoming a first-team star for Tottenham.
Even though the player wants to return to Spurs at the end of his loan spell, he has his sights set on helping Villa achieve promotion to the Premier League this season.
“Promotion is the aim now at Villa. We believed from the start of the season with the players we had, the staff we had,” he said.
“We believed we could get promoted. We are just taking every game as it comes and hopefully come May we are where we want to be.”
Villa are up to fourth in the Championship table, inside the play-off places, after back-to-back wins over Queens Park Rangers and Sunderland.
Bruce’s side are five points off an automatic promotion place and will be hoping to put pressure on the league’s top sides when they face fellow play-off hopefuls Ipswich at Villa Park on Saturday.
