View: West Brom seems an unlikely destination for Jed Wallace after speaking out about his future

West Brom transfer target Jed Wallace needs to be given a chance in the Premier League and he has spoken out about his future.

As reported by the Sun’s Alan Nixon on Sunday [22 May], the Baggies are said to be in talks with the 28-year-old winger with his Millwall contract expiring this summer.

However, a player of Wallace’s quality needs to be given a shot in the Premier League after years of Championship excellence.

Talking on the latest episode of the NTT20 Podcast, on Monday [40:56, 23 May], Wallace said: “People think you want to move to get a few extra quid in your pocket but it’s not like that for me.

“If that was the case I would be playing in Turkey right now.”

Wallace added: “I have made no secret to anyone that I want to play in the Premier League.

“I was playing with Connor Coady against Port Vale a few years back and now he is captaining England, and for me, I believe I can do it.”

Steve Bruce is prepared to offer Wallace a lucrative deal but by the sounds of it, the winger isn’t looking for a lucrative deal.

The 28-year-old is at a stage in his career where he will only have a limited amount of opportunities to break into the Premier League.

After West Brom’s dismal season, Wallace must be convinced that a move to the Hawthorns will give him the best chance of reaching the Premier League next season.

There will be a plethora of Championship clubs circling for the winger, and many of them would’ve had better seasons than the Baggies.

Bruce should be going all out for the Millwall winger with the Baggies being limp and uninspiring in front of goal last season.

Wallace provides a goal threat and a creative spark that is a top priority for Bruce this summer.

Time will tell whether the Baggies hierarchy can convince the winger that West Brom will be a Championship force next season.

In other West Brom news, a move for Sam Johnstone is now looking “unlikely” for two Premier League sides, narrowing his future prospects considerably.
