Millwall return a "no brainer", says Wallace

19 January 2017

Winger speaks following loan return

Jed Wallace has one goal on his return to The Den - to finish the job that he started last season.


The winger, who played 14 times on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers last season, has re-joined The Lions until the end of the campaign and told millwallfc.co.uk that the deal was a "no brainer".


"There's been a lot of messing around with trying to get it done and getting it over the line - whether it was going to be a loan or a different scenario," he said.


"My goal is to come here and do something similar to what I did last year, stay until the end of the season and try to finish the job."


Interest in Wallace was high, but the winger stated that there was only one place he wanted to spend the rest of the campaign.


He added: "You can't take where you feel settled for advantage. I have a good relationship here with the boys and the manager and there's a good rapport with the supporters - it feels like a bit of unfinished business.


"I know I can hit the ground running here - it seemed like a bit of a no brainer."


Millwall sit in a similar position to this time last year. With 20 games remaining in the League One campaign, The Lions are in eighth place on 39 points - just one point worse off.


With 14 games in the next eight weeks, Wallace claimed that strength in depth and competition for places is key, whilst also suggesting that he is "ready to go" with whatever role manager Neil Harris decides to use him in.


"The key to the group is keeping Gregs and Moro fit. If myself, Fred and Aiden can supply them, we're going to look strong between now and the end of the season.


"I think strength in depth is important. There's a lot of games to be played and we need to stay together as a group.


"I look forward to repaying the gaffer's faith in me and helping the club get up the table."
