Josh Onomah is in final discussions with Fulham over a mutual termination of his current contract, according to reports this afternoon.

The midfielder’s Craven Cottage deal has six months to run and the Whites are willing to release the 25 year-old early in order to ensure he can gain first-team football elsewhere outside of the January transfer window, which closes on Tuesday. Onomah, who arrived at Fulham as part of the deal that took teenage starlet Ryan Sessegnon to Tottenham Hotspur in 2019, has made just two substitute appearances for Marco Silva this season – with the Portuguese head coach preferring Harrison Reed and Joao Palhinha in midfield.

Onomah, who has scored five goals in 76 appearances for Fulham, was also a bit-part player in Silva’s first campaign at Craven Cottage, making 22 appearances as the Whites won the Championship title. He was close to joining West Bromwich Albion on loan in the summer transfer window – but the paperwork finalising the deal was not completed in time.
