West Brom transfer news: Baggies complete Jed Wallace signing; EFL cup draw confirmed

Jed Wallace Millwall

West Brom have announced the signing of winger Jed Wallace from fellow Championship side Millwall on a four-year deal.

The 28-year-old joins the club from the Lions, where across 210 appearances for the Lions he scored 37 goals and provided 39 assists.

Wallace is the Baggies’ second signing of the summer, joining midfielder John Swift in moving to the Hawthorns.

Boss Steve Bruce told the club website: “Jed will be a massive asset to our team, and I’m absolutely delighted to get him through the door.

“He is somebody who I’ve admired for a long time and have tried to sign before. He’s got pace, power, penetration in the final third and, above all, is a top pro.

“To have secured our two primary targets in Jed and John Swift is terrific, and to get these deals both done before the squad return for pre-season is testament to the hard work being done behind the scenes by Ron Gourlay and the recruitment team.”

Meanwhile, Albion have been drawn to play Sheffield United at home in the Carabao first round.

The two clubs have met just once in the competition, with the Baggies claiming a 2-1 second-round victory at The Hawthorns in 1974.
