Player unsure of long-term Millwall future



Millwall winger Fred Onyedinma has opened up about his future at the London club ahead of a return the Championship side.

The 21-year-old is currently enjoying a successful loan at League One outfit Wycombe Wanderers, regularly featuring for the Chairboys, having made 14 appearances and scoring twice. 

In October he scored his two goals, two matches in a row – a landmark moment for the winger who had failed to do that in three-and-a-half years.

Having been a bit-part player last year making the majority of his appearances from the bench, the winger moved to Adams Park on a six-month loan and is due back at Millwall when his loan expires in the New Year.

Ahead of his return, the attacker spoke to NewsAtDen and issued his thoughts on his future with the London club.

“Things can change. I could go back to Millwall and start playing,” Onyedinma said.

“Really and truly, with me, I would just want to play more regularly because that’s where I’m going to get the best out of myself. 

“It’s not in a selfish way, but it’s your career, so you have to get the best out of it at whatever team you’re at.

“I’m at Wycombe now, and I am playing regularly, so that’s something I would obviously have to look at.

“You have to find something that works for you and keep doing it and strive to keep getting better.”

He added: “I know what football is like, one month you’re there and playing well, and that can change in the next six months. 

“You have to keep working harder than ever and your time will come.

“I haven’t spoken to Neil [Harris]. I’m sure they do watch the games, but I haven’t been physically in contact.”

The Verdict 

The words coming out of Fred Onyedinma’s mouth seem as if he wants to leave to be able to play regularly and that does not seem to be forthcoming with the Lions.

When he arrives back at The Den, he will be behind four strikers and four wingers for his place in the side.

Lee Gregory, Steve Morison, Tom Elliott and Tom Bradshaw are all expected to feature more than Onyedinma in the attack.

While Aiden O’Brien, Jed Wallace, Shane Ferguson and Jiri Skalak are all vying for positions out wide.

I think he still has a future with Millwall and would undoubtedly be a better option than Skalak at present who hasn’t been able to show his ability since his summer arrival.

Hopefully, this will not be a case of letting another player go who flourishes at another club – that has happened all too often at the club over the years.
