'Onyedinma has Lions future' – Millwall boss Harris

FRED Oonyedinma's long-term future is at Millwall, Lions boss Neil Harris has reiterated.

Onyedinma joined Wycombe Wanderers last Friday on loan until January and made his debut the next day as a 70th-minute substitute in a 1-1 draw at home to Luton Town in League One.

Onyedinma is in his second spell with the Chairboys after scoring eight goals in 27 games with the then-League Two side in 2014-15.

There are currently four senior Millwall players out on loan, with Ben Thompson at Portsmouth, Tom King with AFC Wimbledon and Sid Nelson at League Two Swindon Town.

Onyedinma hasn’t been a regular in the side since early 2017, when his performances in Millwall’s FA Cup run brought him to the attention of Premier League sides.

He hadn’t played in the league for Millwall this season.

“Fred, Ben, Sid, Kingy, they are the young players coming through at Millwall,” Harris said.

“Fred has been an important part of the squad for three years, but he has never had a sustained spell in the side, apart from maybe around January, February time last year.

“He has never been the main man. He was frustrated and wanted to get out and play regular first-team football, which we’re hoping he will get at Wycombe.

“Fred needs game time and competitive minutes to continue his development.

“We forget how young these players are. Being out playing regular league football will only benefit them.”
