Tottenham midfielder Josh Onomah has admitted that he has considered leaving the club on loan, but insists that he trusts the judgement of Mauricio Pochettino.
The Spurs manager has become renowned for introducing younger players to his senior squad and Omonah is someone that has been on the fringes.
The 20-year-old made 12 appearances cross all competitions last season and scored in the EFL Cup against Gillingham.
He will hope to feature on a more regular basis ahead of next season and recently helped England’s Under-20s side win the World Cup.
Onomah has explained that he has thought about leaving on loan, but says his future is solely in the hands of the manager.
“I have (thought about going on loan) but I trust the gaffer,” Onomah said, as quoted by the Daily Mail. “He speaks to me. He gives me confidence when I’m low, when I’m down, and I believe in him. So whatever he thinks is the best for me, I’ll stand behind him.”
Onomah made a big impression in the summer at the Under-20s World Cup and could become the latest English player to become a Spurs regular.
The central midfielder is recognised for his quality in possession and often helps support the striker.
He faces tough competition in the side with the likes of Mousa Dembele, Eric Dier, Harry Winks and Victor Wanyama all vying for a starting position.
