With less than 12 months remaining on his contract, Jed Wallace could feasibly part ways with Millwall in January or next summer after being a Lions player since 2017.
After two loan spells with the club when contracted to Wolves, Wallace became a permanent Millwall player in the summer of 2017 for an undisclosed fee and he’s more than proved his worth over the last five years at The Den.
Wallace has developed into one of the Championship’s top wingers and in the previous two campaigns in the second tier he has scored 10 goals in each of them, proving to be Millwall’s leading threat from both a scoring perspective and assists.

But the better he has got the more interest from other clubs there has been – it has never seemed likely that Wallace would leave the Lions at any point but as the transfer window slammed shut in August, news soon emerged about what could happen the following January.
Football League World exclusively revealed back in September that a whole host of clubs were monitoring the 27-year-old’s situation with a whole host of Premier League teams as well as Celtic and Rangers willing to do a deal.
It was around that time where Wallace revealed there was no update on his future as he preferred to leave his situation in the hands of his agents – but has there been any update since?
Well the simple answer is no, there hasn’t been one.
There seems to be radio silence when it comes to Wallace potentially sticking with Millwall beyond this season, and as we are only a month away from the transfer window reopening there will be fears that he will be a wanted man.
Could the doubt over his future be creating an issue on the pitch? After an electric start to the 2020-21 campaign which saw him score five times and notch four assists as well in the first 12 matches, Wallace has failed to score since mid-October – a run of seven straight game.
The Lions have only won twice in that time which shows how much they rely on Wallace to shine to make things happen – and they could do with knowing where their number seven stands as we edge closer to clubs being able to come in for the attacking midfielder.
