Millwall secure permanent deal for Wallace

Winger joins from Wolves...

26 June 2017

Millwall Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Jed Wallace from Wolverhampton Wanderers for an undisclosed fee.

The winger joins from Molineux on a three-year deal after impressing in two separate loan spells at The Den in 2015/16 and 2016/17.

Wallace has made 35 appearances for The Lions so far, scoring four goals and was an integral part of the team that won promotion to The Championship via the Sky Bet League One Play-Offs last season.

"[The move] is something that's been in the pipeline since January when I arrived back on loan," Wallace told millwallfc.co.uk. "I felt settled as soon I came back - the surroundings were familiar for me.

"I know all the lads and I get on well with the manager, so I'm delighted to be here for the next three seasons; hopefully we can have many more good times."

The 23-year-old went on to explain how it was a "no-brainer" to join the club permanently.

"I know I can affect games at Championship level and I know the manager is going to give me the opportunity to do that here. It was a bit of a no-brainer to sign. 

"It's been a good break, but I'm looking forward to getting back in for pre-season training. We didn't want the season to end after being on such a high. It's a massive season for myself and for us."

Millwall boss Neil Harris stated that the winger will be "really key" as the club attack the Sky Bet Championship in 2017/18.

"Jed is a great young man," he said. "He's had two loan spells at The Den and thoroughly enjoyed his time here - he was adamant he wanted to come back, too. His desire to come and play for Millwall has been really strong.

"I think everyone has seen the attributes he brings and will bring to Championship football. He's a natural wide player, has pace, energy and work ethic and also end product. That's going to be really key towards us having a successful year in The Championship."
