Neil Harris has moved to update Millwall’s supporters on the status of midfielder Fred Onyedinma.
The 22-year-old has had a less than triumphant return to the club since he was recalled from his loan spell at League One outfit Wycombe Wanderers.
The winger returned to The Den in the new year after a successful stint at Adams Park earlier in the campaign but has played just eight minutes upon his return.
Fellow League One loanee Ben Thompson, who was at Portsmouth has established himself in the starting XI since the same time, under the same recall circumstances.
But Onyedinma, who was deemed “unplayable” by Harris when returning to the club has failed to play since the middle of February – even missing out on a place on the bench in recent weeks.
When asked about the pacey Lion, Harris told NewsAtDen: “Fred’s fit, he played 90 minutes the other day in the 23s [against Barnsley], he’s fit and healthy.
“He’s available for selection.”
That is a pretty short, sharp answer from Harris on Onyedinma’s current status.
It will make fans wonder what he has done to be out of the side considering he has not been injured and has been seen training and playing for the U23s.
With Millwall battling against relegation and Harris’ previous comments, it has left the supporters confused as to why he has not been given a chance.
Fred was class at Wycombe on loan and was on form, but was failed to be given a chance since his return, other than the final eight minutes in the draw with Sheffield Wednesday back in February.
