OL­LIE’S IN POLE TO SNAP UP ACE FRED

The Football League Paper - - NEWS - By Neil Fissler

IAN HOL­LOWAY is set to raid his for­mer club Mill­wall to land highly rated winger Fred Onyed­inma, who is out of con­tract at the end of the sea­son.

Onyed­inma, 20, has frus­trated the Lions, who would be en­ti­tled to com­pen­sa­tion, by re­fus­ing all at­tempts to agree a new deal to keep him at The Den for next sea­son.

The academy grad­u­ate has been a reg­u­lar in the Lions side since the start of last sea­son and was given his de­but for the club by Hol­loway.

He spent a large chunk of the 2014-15 sea­son on loan at Wycombe and has al­ready notched up more than 100 se­nior ap­pear­ances.

He has also been watched by Premier League sides Wat­ford and Hull af­ter play­ing a key role in the Lions knock­ing three sides from the top flight out of this sea­son’s FA Cup.

But Hol­loway is set to com­plete the deal when Onyed­inma’s con­tract with Mill­wall runs out in June af­ter keep­ing tabs on the star­let since tak­ing con­trol again at Lof­tus Road in Novem­ber.
