Millwall have confirmed that winger Jed Wallace has signed a new long- term deal with the club.

Wallace, who is in his third spell with the club has played 100 times for Millwall. The landmark coming in Millwall’s last game at Carrow Road on November 10th.

Wallace, who is 24 years old, originally joined Millwall on loan from Wolves in 2016. He instantly became a fan favourite. His impact was clear and immediate as he helped the Lions reach the 2016 League One Play-Off Final. He scored once and assisted on numerous occasions in his first 14 appearances for the club.

Wallace started the following campaign in the Wolves side. However, injury saw him fall out of favour and he eventually re-joined Millwall in January for another loan spell . He again helped the Lions to the League One Play-Off Final and played in the 1-0 win over Bradford City at Wembley to gain promotion to the Championship.

That summer saw Wallace make a permanent move to SE16 and sign a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee. He became a very key part of Neil Harris side last season making 47 appearances, scoring seven goals.

Wallace spoke to Millwall’s official club website saying that he ‘loves’ the club.

“I’m delighted. I’ve re-joined this club three times now. It’s nice that the club, again have shown faith in me and have rewarded me with a new contract. In the summer the club made it clear that they wanted me to be settled here. I’ve always maintained from the minute I walked through the door here that when I pull on a Millwall shirt, I’ll do everything I can for the football club. That’s never changed.

The midfielder also spoke of his love for the club. “I’m happy I love this club. I love playing here. It’s a great area for me to live in, it’s close to my family. I know the manager well, I feel like I know the supporters well and I feel like they know me well, so it’s a win-win. I want to be playing my football at Championship level, and to do it with a club like Millwall is perfect.”
