Millwall are facing up to a month of speculation surrounding star man, Jed Wallace.
Wallace has carried Millwall’s main attacking threat in the Championship for a number of years now, with the 27-year-old striking five goals and chalking up six assists so far this season.
However, Wallace is out of contract in the summer and that’s led to speculation floating around at this early stage of the January transfer window.
What’s the latest?
Reports broke yesterday from Sky Sports (Transfer Centre: 5/1/2022; 11:33am) that Wallace was set to sign a pre-contract agreement with Besiktas.
His expiring contract allows him to do so, with foreign clubs able to enter negotiations with players as their deals tick into the final six months.
However, there’s domestic interest.
John Percy at The Telegraph, who is usually a reliable source of Nottingham Forest news, claimed on Twitter that Steve Cooper’s side were trying to get a deal done for Wallace.
He claims that Forest’s bid to sign the Millwall playmaker was £1.2m.
Need to offer more. Last bid was around £1.2m

Wallace, who has scored 37 goals and assisted 35 more across four-and-a-half years in the Championship, is also on the radar of Leeds United and Watford. That pair could offer the forward a chance to step up into the Premier League, as per The News.
In 24 hours that’s four different clubs linked with a move to sign Wallace from Millwall and, in truth, it’s not quite clear where he’s going to be playing his football come February.
The likelihood of Millwall retaining him, though, feels slim as speculation intensifies.
