IAN Holloway believes Fred Onyedinma's loan move to Wycombe is a great opportunity for the young winger to get much-needed experience.
Chairboys boss Gareth Ainsworth, who played under Holloway at QPR, has been entrusted with the 18-year-old for the next five weeks.
But Holloway intends to recall Onyedinma in the New Year.
"I'm only letting Fred go until January," confirmed Holloway. "He's a wonderful talent and needs experience.
"When he comes back, I'll be delighted to have him back in the first team fold."
Holloway believes a short spell away from the club will help Onyedinma's development.
"I spent a bit of time with Fred on the training ground this week," added the Lions boss.
"It's explaining to him what he needs to do. I've got some Raheem Sterling clips that I want to show him.
"Occasionally he switches off and I've got to get him out of those habits. A loan move will definitely help him mature."
