Wolves midfielder returns from loan spell at League One club

Wolves have announced that Jed Wallace has been recalled to the club following a successful loan spell at League One side Millwall.

The 21-year-old has been with the Lions for just over two months and has played an integral role in helping Neil Harris’ side push for the play-offs by creating a number of goals for the south-east London side.

His emergency loan deal would have come to an end in a month’s time anyway but boss Kenny Jackett has recalled the midfielder earlier in the hope that he can make an impact in the first-team – much like Jordan Graham did when he returned from his spell at Oxford United.

Jackett said: “We have watched Jed closely at Millwall, and he has enjoyed a very positive impact on the team with his performances.

“At 21 years of age, we are now keen to get him back to Wolves and to look for him to make the step-up and bridge the gap between League One and the Championship.”

The youngster joined the Midlands side in the summer after an impressive season at League Two side Portsmouth where he scored 17 times in 50 appearances.

Wallace, who has been capped once by the England under-19 side, has made seven appearances for Wolves this season before joining Millwall on a temporary basis in January.

He will be looking to stake a place in the team that travels to Burnley on Saturday – the last league fixture before a two-week international break.
