Former Millwall winger Jed Wallace enjoying West Brom captaincy role

Jed Wallace has talked about his seamless transition to West Bromwich Albion captain – with the attacker set to face former club Millwall on Friday.

The 29-year-old scored 42 goals for the Lions in 260 matches before opting to reject a new contract and move on a free transfer to the Baggies in 2022.

Wallace was handed the armband at Albion before the start of this campaign.

He scored his fourth goal of the season in the 2-0 win over Bristol City before the international break.

He told the club’s website: “Just playing for this club is a massive honour for me. I never lose sight of the responsibility I have as captain.

“I’ll always give my best, no matter where I’m asked to play. I’ll always try as hard as I can.

“We’ve got a great group of lads so it’s really, really easy for me to be honest. I’m talking about the likes of Kyle Bartley, Alex Palmer, Conor Townsend, Okay Yokuslu, Darnell Furlong and Alex Mowatt to name a few.

“Those guys are always chipping in and helping out. We’re all focused on the same things and nobody steps out of line.

“We’ve got great personalities and leaders in the team, so for me, again, it’s easy.

“Being the captain is a pleasure and I’ve loved every minute of it so far and every minute since I’ve been here at Albion.

“I’m looking forward to the rest of the season and gearing up for a really big weekend over Easter with games against Millwall and Watford.”
