Wallace future clearer this week?

While nothing 'might' be decided this week the suggestion appears to be that we will have a better idea as to what the future of Jed Wallace, and if this will be with Portsmouth Football Club or not, is going to be later this week.

Fresh from a couple of weeks in the Caribbean - very nice eh at any age, let alone as a 20-year-old! - further talks on his future will take place 'in the next 24-hours'...

Andy Awford has told the News that he will not be meeting him in 'the Mayfair in London' for secret meetings with it more likely to be in 'Starbucks over a cup of coffee' with it certainly not going to be 'cloak and dagger' at all.

The hope is to convince him to stay with Pompey anyway...

I was under the impression that Pompey had turned down Peterborough's offer in January?

Although the News went on to say that it was actually Wallace that turned down the option to join them as he would sooner wait until his contract with Pompey ended and then 'access his options'.

They could return with Leeds, Leicester and Wolves all credited with an interest...

Should it be that Wallace actually did turn down a move then it increases my hopes that maybe, just maybe we could still keep him - something that I have this sneaky suspicion we might anyway!

Wallace, quite rightly, wants to play as high as he can but it cannot be stressed enough how important his next move is - if he moves on, albeit to a club at a higher level - if he is not playing regular 1st team football his development will suffers, he knows that he will get this at Fratton.

Like I have previously said, bizarrely given he is out of contract, I am actually more confident this summer that we could keep him than I have at any other time in recent transfer windows!

That is not to say that I am saying we will keep him mind...

If Awford can sell the vision to him, a vision that you sense can become a reality with him at the helm, with some assurances that 'if' the right offer at the right price came in for him at some point is Wallace signing a new contract and staying so beyond the realms of possibility?

I do not think it is.

I also very much think that Wallace is still 'torn' on what to do and feel that he does want to stay, playing in league two is always a struggle though but who is to say that within a couple of years we could not be back in the championship! With the benefit of another couple of years of regular 1st team football behind him he would be set up even better.

What do we think guys, will he stay or will he go?

By not signing a contract he was hoping to make himself more attractive to another club. I would have hoped that, despite wanting to play at a higher level, he would have signed a contract to help the club out financially. I don't think it would have prevented a move and everyone would have wished him well. By doing it this way he is giving the impression that he doesn't give a monkey's about the club. I hope this isn't the case and he signs something soon.

In total agreement with Lemmi. he is a good player but rather immature & if he thinks he can be a big name in a few leagues higher he just might find himself warming the benc for most of the season.
