Fulham midfielder Josh Onomah has given his take on leaving Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window, as quoted on the Championship club’s official website.
Onomah joined Championship outfit Fulham from Premier League outfit Tottenham on transfer deadline day.
The 22-year-old midfielder has reflected on his switch between the two London clubs on deadline day.
Onomah told Fulham’s official website: “It was weird leaving Tottenham. I’ve been with them since I was eight, Tottenham has been my whole life, so it has been strange, but when one door closes another one opens.
“All I’m feeling now is excitement about the new challenge here, and hopefully I can settle in quickly.”
Onomah had been at Tottenham for years, but the midfielder had failed to establish himself in the first team.
It made sense for the midfielder to leave Spurs on a permanent basis this summer, as he was going to struggle to do much at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The former England Under-21 international has done relatively well in the Championship during his loan spells at Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday, and Fulham fans should be optimistic about the midfielder being successful at Craven Cottage.
Fulham are aiming to finish in the top two of the Championship table this season and clinch automatic promotion to the Premier League.
