Wallace: In ideal world I'll be playing Championship football with Millwall

JED Wallace would like to sign a permanent deal with Millwall in the summer – and hinted the prospect of Championship football would increase that likelihood.

Wallace last week signed on loan for the Lions from Wolves for the second time in a year and made his debut as a second-half substitute at Bradford last weekend.

Unlike last season, when he went back to Wolves in March, he will be part of Millwall’s squad for the rest of the season.

He could make his first start in his second spell with the club in the fourth round of the FA Cup against Watford this Sunday.

Millwall manager Neil Harris has made no secret of his desire to sign Wallace, 22, from Wolves in the summer, and Wallace revealed that nearly happened in January.

“To be honest, I thought there was a big chance of getting it done in this window but for various reasons that I won’t talk about it didn’t get done,” he said.

“For me it’s just about playing, whether you’ve got five years left on your contract or one month left on your contract.

“Every game is a shop window, that’s the nature of football. I’ll do my absolute best and re-evaluate in the summer.

“In an absolutely ideal world Millwall will be in the Championship and I’ll be playing for Millwall in the Championship next season.

“Football isn’t always as easy as you hope it’s going to be but I’ve always said as long as I’m playing football and improving then I’m happy.”
