Pompey shun Wallace bids

Portsmouth are battling to keep talented teenager Jed Wallace after rejecting more than one bid for the midfielder before transfer window closed last month.

Last Updated: 11/02/13 at 15:24 Post Comment

The 18-year-old joined Pompey in 2011 from Lewes after he began his career with Farnborough Town.

This season has seen him make rapid progress and, after scoring eight goals in just 11 games for Whitehawk while on loan, he was recalled to Fratton Park.

He has since become a first-team member under Guy Whittingham and has bagged two goals in seven appearances from midfield.

Wallace was attracting interest from Premier League clubs while at Whitehawk and now Sky Sports understands Pompey rejected two bids from Football League clubs - believed to be Brighton and Port Vale - in January.

Portsmouth revealed to Sky Sports that they had shunned interest in Wallace last month.

"There was some interest in Jed before the transfer window closed but we won't reveal who that was from," a spokesman confirmed.

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
