Midfielder Onyedinma commits his future to Millwall

FRED Onyedinma has followed a number of academy products in committing his future to the club.

The attacking midfielder, who won’t turn 19 until November, has signed a new two-year deal with the Lions taking him up to the summer of 2017.

Onyedinma spent much of last season on loan at Wycombe where he scored eight goals in 25 League Two appearances to help them to the play-off final.

He was an unused sub at Wembley where the Chairboys lost 7-6 on penalties to Southend.

Millwall boss Neil Harris has made retaining the club’s promising young players his priority and confirmation of Onyedinma’s deal follows those of John Marquis, Aiden O’Brien and Sid Nelson.

Gareth Ainsworth, his boss at Wycombe, said of Onyedinma in January: “Fred doesn’t know how good he is. That’s his huge trait. He’s such a humble guy and I’m so pleased for him, how it’s going.”

Here are some of Onyedinma's strikes for Wycombe last season:

    More good news along with Jimmy's signature. We just need a left winger with pace, an experienced striker at league 1 level & a keeper. Keep it going Lions.

    Can we refrain from calling a player coming from the academy a "Product" ? Sounds like a f*****g tomato and not a footballer. Having got that off my chest...great news.!

        @keamers: Sure...a product is produced... but we train,educate and nurture young men to become footballers not a product

    The likes of O'Brien, Cowan-Hall, Fred, Abdou, Upson, Williams, Thompson, Martin and Powell all able to play Midfield make me very excited for next season, got a lot of options for midfield and it looks by far our strongest position, now just need a new GK hopefully Archer now he's been released and a proven goal scorer in this league and I believe we will be a huge force in this league! COYL roll on league one, absolutely buzzing now for August!!!

    The fact we are looking at a much younger and dare I say, hungry squad is really good news, but the fact they have been all together for a long time now, have been under the guidance of Bomber before and now getting into the first team playing along with the likes of Jimmy must mean there will be a very strong bond in the camp. Reading between the lines of Neil's comments, about bringing players in, it does seem to me that being a good 'fit' personality wise, and the attitude off the pitch is actually just as important on their ability on it. Can we also get off the boards back about getting people in, obviously Fred was always going to be a first choice to sign as a striker, now that is done the club know what we definitely have and what else we need. Great piece of business and like most can't wait for the start of the season.

    Get in!!! Was bitterly disappointed that Holloway gave home the cold shoulder after looking so good at the end of the 2013/14 season.

    Welcome back Fred!!!! Roll on next season!!!!

    I think the effort over the last 2 weeks has been to keep our promising players on contracts. Now that has been achieved, I'd expect some movement in the transfer market. A striker next? Then a goalie to replace Forde who is on his way.

      @NICKOLA: I honestly think nobody wants Forde he's pony. Let's hope we get a decent stopper soon so we can tell Forde where to go... I've still got the hump by the way he strung us along at the end of last season by sitting out waiting for a better offer that never came... Forde deserves a wage cut and the bench... He's rude to wall fans and the kids the ungrateful moody git...

      Roll on next season!!!!

    Positive news! But my expectations for our academy boys this year is pretty much a restrained one. I reckon they will all do well but i don't think we can rely on them and nor should we put that type of pressure on them. We now need to see some quality experienced pros come in and help these young lads over the coming season. Need the season to start, the missus is doing my nut in.......

    Optimistic for coming season but lets give the young lads time to settle. Bigger crowds, more expectations, its a nervous time for em. You all know how impatient we are as MFC supporters but give these lads time and support and we'll do ok next season. COYL
