Wallace Contract: 'Earn It!'

Wallace Contract: 'Earn It!'

Carlos Carvalhal has told Ross Wallace that he must force a way into his plans and earn a new contract for the upcoming season, as per the Sheffield Star.

Wallace joined on a free-transfer from Burnley, following Carlos Carvalhal's appointment as Head Coach in the Summer of 2015. Since then, Wallace has been an integral part of the Owls reaching the play-offs in back-to-back seasons, earning 3rd place in the 2016/17 Fan's Player of the Season vote.

However, Wallace's mind could soon be forced to look away from the pitch, as the 32-year-old currently only has 12 months left on his current Owls' deal.

Wallace told the Star: 'I`ve been here two years and played an awful lot of games,'

'I think I have done a good job and will be looking to continue that in pre-season. I have helped create and score goals and linked up well with the strikers.'

'As soon as I came here, I felt part of things and it just felt right. The fans took to me right away.'

'Obviously, you have a few moaners and groaners but the majority of the fans have been right behind me and it feels the right place to be playing my football.'

'I`m enjoying it and I`m enjoying working with the manager.'

'We have a good bunch of players and a great opportunity to achieve something. All the boxes have been ticked.'

'If the club were to offer me another contract, I would snap their hands off.'

'I have spoken to the manager about it. He wants me to have another season playing like I have done in the last two years. If I do that, I will get another extension on my contract. In the meantime, the club won`t be giving me a new contract.'

The only move Owls have completed this summer is a very familiar move to Wallace, Scottish winger joins Wednesday from Burnley on a free-transfer, but this is what he had to add on himself following George Boyd's signing: 'I believe in my ability and quality. Personally, I think I have done enough in the last two years to achieve another contract but you have to respect the manager`s opinion.'

He culminated by again expressing this rhetoric: 'I`m happy enough and I enjoy working under the manager.'
