Millwall youngster gunning for promotion with Wycombe

FRED Onyedinma wants to win promotion with Wycombe – and then "prove himself" at Millwall when he comes back to The Den in the summer.

Onyedinma, who is on loan at Adams Park until the end of the season, is scoring the goals that are fuelling the Chairboys' title challenge in League Two.

His performances for Gareth Ainsworth's side have received glowing reviews and Lions fans are already excited about the 18-year-old's return to SE16.

First, though, Onyedinma wants to get a promotion under his belt.

"I've been thinking about that a lot," he told the Southwark News. "It's a really exciting time for the club.

"This is my first season playing competitively week in, week out and I'm in a team that's pushing for promotion.

"This is something that I've only ever watched on TV before so to be part of it is a really good feeling.

"Even though I'm on loan, it feels like I'm part of the team so I want the best for Wycombe and for them to get promoted."

When Onyedinma does rejoin the Lions' ranks, he is determined to establish himself as a first-team regular.

"I'll come back to Millwall stronger for next season," he added. "I'll be a better player and more determined because I've experienced senior football now.

"Whether the club is in the Championship or League One, it will be a different league for me and another challenge.

"I'm looking forward to coming back in the summer and working with Ian Holloway to keep improving, because I'm still young and need to develop.

"A young player has potential but there comes a time when you need to fulfil that potential. I want to prove myself at Millwall."

Onyedinma has scored match-winning goals for Wycombe but a first-class attitude is his best attribute, according to Ainsworth.

"A lot of young players think they've made it before they have," said Ainsworth.

"Fred is one of the most humble guys you could meet and knows that he has to work hard for his career."
