Wallace 'delighted' after Millwall confirm permanent move for winger

MILLWALL have completed the signing of Jed Wallace from Wolverhampton Wanderers for an undisclosed fee.

Wallace has signed a three-year deal after two previous loan spells with the Lions.

Millwall boss Neil Harris made Wallace one of his priority recruits this summer, and he follows Tom Elliott and James Meredith in signing permanently ahead of the 2017-18 Championship season.

Wallace has made no secret of his affection for Millwall, and it is where he has produced his best form in the last two seasons after a difficult time at Wolves, who appointed their fourth manager in four years this summer.

Wallace will link up with the rest of the Millwall squad for the start of pre-season training this week.

He told Millwall’s official website: “[It’s] something that's been in the pipeline since January when I arrived back on loan. 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."

"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.”
