Wallace First in the Bag!

Wallace First in the Bag!

27-year-old winger, Ross Wallace has a signed a new contract to stay at Turf Moor until June 2015 after agreeing a two year extension. His previous contract was due to expire at the end of the current campaign. Wallace signed in July 2010 making the short journey from Lancashire rivals, Preston North End.

He is clearly delighted about the contract extension saying:

"It`s what I wanted and didn`t take long.

"I didn`t want to move from the start and I am just happy to get a bit of security.

"I`m not sure really sure what would have happened with Eddie (Howe) here, because we didn`t really discuss anything.

"But the new manager made it clear that he wanted me to stay. I am enjoying my football and as long as I am playing games I am happy.

"I want to play at the highest level I possibly can. The manager has come in with the same ambition, so it`s a good situation."

Clarets gaffer Sean Dyche talking about the new contract said:

"We are delighted that Ross has agreed a new, long-term deal with the club.

"He is a valued member of the squad and I am sure he has a big part to play in our future."

Wallace becomes the first of our senior players out of contract in the summer to sign a new deal.

Good on yer Ross!! Pleased about that! Many will have to take a pay cut to stay though, some up to 40% I am told! Now that is a test of loyalty!

Have to say I wasnt expecting Ross to be the first announced as a new contract being signed. I have been impressed with Wallace since the arrival of Dyche - certainly much improved from his early season form when I thought he was bringing very little to the table. I hope this can continue!

A good player on his day, and Dyche certainly seems to have done or said something to up his game . And that's a sign of a good manager who seems to be getting the players to play for each other and the team. The team spirit has definitely improved since Shaun's arrival and is evident in their 'never say die' attitude on the pitch. I think the drop in salary is fairly commonplace in most clubs these days tmp , as clubs adjust to the financial reality that is hitting us all . A dose of premiership football should improve that situation though :-)

Feels like we are becoming a vaguely stable club what with players beginning to commit their futures and Austin staying. Just need Forrest to keep their hands off Dyche.

BBCwww says Davies is Forest favourite Madge. Also, I have a strong instinct that Sean is a loyal person who recognises the benefits for his CV of managing a club over a long period, and of being at a club that sticks by people... though as I write that the pain returns once again of having once thought something a bit like that about you know who. I was reading Fletch's book Magical just prior to coming on here. He's very, very good on Boardroom politics and doesn't hold back from expressing his opinions. I'd encourage anyone wanting to learn what was going on behind the scenes in the Coyle interlude (it didn't last long enough to deserve to be called an era) to read it. It's NOT your typical footballer memoirs. Anyway, what I actually started posting on here about was to ask if someone would be kind enough to remind me who the other players out of contract this summer are.

As far as I am aware CP, we are looking at Beast, Granty, Marney, Pato & Mccann.

Thanks, CD. I'd guess that Ross would have been 4th or 5th on my 'most wanted' from those 6. I'd also guess that he's just the first to accept an offer rather than necessarily the first to be made one. But, on current form, he's very welcome.

I think we have the makings of a good team, a couple of tweeks and all our present squad on longish contracts and we could be going somewhere. I just hope, as I think, they are team players rather than journymen

Interesting comment that CP - In a text with Barnsey I said he would have been my fourth choice also - but that if he continues current form it is good!

I'm with Dale on this - Wallace has been really impressive over the last few months. Hopefully his good form will continue now that he has, as they say, 'put pen to paper' on a new deal.
