Fred Onyedinma has today committed his long term future to Millwall by putting pen to paper on a three year deal.

Having come through the club’s Academy, he has now signed an extension keeping him at The Den until the summer of 2020 and having made his debut as a fresh faced 17 year old back in 2014, he now boasts 106 six appearances for the club, with a return of ten goals, and he last appeared in May’s League One Play Off Final win over Bradford City as a substitute.

Speaking to the official site after penning the deal, Onyedinma explained.

‘I love playing for this club and am delighted to have signed a new deal here. The manager has always been great with me, right back to when he gave me my debut against Southend, and I’m looking forward to improving under him further in the coming years. Now my focus is on continuing to work hard during pre-season so I can play as big a role as possible in the Championship for Millwall.’

Manager Neil Harris was naturally delighted to have finally got the contract signed and sealed as he’d made no secret of the fact he wanted the player to stay.

‘Naturally I’m very pleased to have concluded this deal. It’s no secret that it has taken time, which for various reasons these things can do. At this time of year, in June and July, people are away on their holidays so tying up deals can take time. I’ve always been relaxed about it because Fred has reiterated throughout how happy he is at Millwall and how keen he is to stay.’

Harris went on to say.

‘He is a boy with huge potential. Fred has improved immensely over the last 12 months and has a bright future in football. It’s important to remember he is still only 20. This is another piece of the jigsaw complete as we prepare for the new season.’
