The 19-year-old midfielder is among the most sought-after talents currently plying their trade outside of the top flight.

Premier League outfit Stoke City are the latest side reported to be mulling over a January approach for his services.

With Wallace in the final year of his contract, and yet to agree fresh terms, Portsmouth may have their hand forced in the winter window.

Chairman Iain McInnes accepts as much and concedes there would be little he could do if a suitable offer is tabled in the New Year.

McInnes said of a player who has also attracted interest from a number of Championship clubs: "The reality of life is if an offer comes in and it is acceptable to the football club, everybody has got their price.

"Jed is a class above this level."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
