Millwall’s pursuit of Scunthorpe United defender Murray Wallace is moving closer, according to The Sun journalist Alan Nixon.
The Scottish centre-back helped Scunthorpe get into the League One Play-Offs last season and they were bracing themselves for interest in his this summer. It now appears a move to Championship side Millwall is on the cards for him.
The Lions boss, Neil Harris, is keen to bolster his sides’ defensive options ahead of the next campaign and wants to build upon their great season last term. Murray Wallace is one deal they hope to get over the line but it is not the only one in their sights at the moment.
Wallace started his career at his boyhood club Rangers but joined Falkirk at the age of 16. He broke into their first-team during the 2011/12 season and was snapped up by Championship side Huddersfield Town in January and was immediately loaned back to Falkirk as part of the deal.
He then played 60 games for the Terriers in the second tier over a four year period after returning from loan spells. Wallace fell down the pecking order at Huddersfield and was loaned out to Scunthorpe for the start of the 2015/16 season. The Iron then made the move permanent in January 2016.
Wallace has impressed for the Iron ever since his switch from Huddersfield and has been one of the most consistent performers in League One. He would be a very astute signing by Millwall.
