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.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
