Attacker moves to the Championship while Fred Onyedinma extends loan deal until the summer.Paris Cowan-Hall’s flying form for the Wanderers this season has been rewarded with a move to the Championship, joining Millwall on a permanent basis.
The 24-year-old has flourished under the guidance of manager Gareth Ainsworth, having been discarded by former club Plymouth Argyle and converted into one of the division’s most exciting attacking players, scoring in five consecutive games in an explosive recent run of form.
Cowan-Hall’s contract with the Wanderers was due to expire at the end of the season and although he was offered an improved deal to remain at Adams Park, he has accepted the opportunity to move to the Den and leaves with the best wishes of everyone at the club.
As part of the deal, fellow forward Fred Onyedinma – who is currently on loan with the Blues from Millwall – has extended his stay with Wycombe until the end of the season.
Manager Gareth Ainsworth said: “Paris has had a brilliant season for us so far and it’s no surprise that he has attracted attention from bigger clubs. We would have loved him to stay but it’s difficult to compete with Championship clubs because players want to test themselves at the highest level possible. I’m very proud to see how his game has improved during his time with us and wish him all the best at Millwall.
“Fred is a very talented footballer as well and it’s a boost for us to keep him with us for the rest of the season. He plays in a similar position to Paris and we will continue to do what we can to bring out the best of his ability.”
Chairman Andrew Howard said: “It’s a great move for Paris, and a good deal for Wycombe Wanderers. We tried to keep him, but fully respect the fact that his current form has earned him Championship status.
“Yet again, Gareth and his coaching staff deserve huge credit for developing another young talent. The work they have invested into Paris has benefitted the club now and will continue to do so in the future as his career develops. We will watch his progression closely as he now has all the attributes to make a name for himself higher up the leagues.”
Paris played 53 times for the Wanderers, scoring 11 times.
