Josh Onomah has long been on the fringes of the first team at Tottenham and this season headed out on loan to Sheffield Wednesday, where injury and inconsistency has robbed him of the chance to prove that he has what it takes to make it under Mauricio Pochettino.
His struggles may suggest that Spurs could cash in on him while they still can. The time to do so could be as soon as this summer, as The Sun say that Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach are considering launching a move for the England under 21 international.
He would not become the first promising Englishman to make the move either given that West Ham’s Reece Oxford made eight appearances for the club during a loan spell last season.
With two years left on his contract this summer, Spurs would be in a strong negotiating position for his services, despite the fact that he has only made 11 appearances in the Championship this campaign.
The versatile offensive midfielder impressed last season for Aston Villa as the Villans pushed for promotion back to the top flight but he has failed to kick on this season at Hillsborough.
Given his lack of progress, Tottenham may well feel the time is right to cash in and it could give Onomah a new lease of life and new opportunity to show what he is really capable of.
