Wallace moves to Sheffield Wednesday

10 July 2015

Sheffield Wednesday have signed experienced Scottish winger Ross Wallace.

The former Burnley wideman has penned a one-year deal at Hillsborough.

Wallace, born in Dundee, began his career with SPL giants Celtic, signing a four-year contract in 2003 after progressing through the youth system.

The left winger scored his first goal for Celtic in a 5-0 win over Dunfermline in November 2003 and bagged a hat trick in the club’s 8-1 League Cup victory over Falkirk in September 2004.

In total, Wallace made 52 appearances for the Bhoys before signing for then Championship side Sunderland in August 2006, netting on his debut in a 2-1 win over Derby.

The 30-year-old made 33 appearances in his first season at The Stadium of Light, helping the Wearsiders win the league title en route to a Premier League return.

After 22 top flight appearances for the Black Cats, Wallace moved to Preston - originally on loan before cementing his future at Deepdale in January 2009.

Following 90 games and 12 goals for the Lilywhites, the Scot switched to Burnley for an undisclosed fee in July 2010.

In his first three seasons with the Clarets, Wallace made 43, 49 and 40 appearances respectively and a further 15 in Burnley’s top tier promotion-winning campaign.

During Wallace’s final season with Burnley in the Premier League last term, he scored a dramatic last-minute equaliser at Leicester in October 2014 and again in the Clarets’ FA Cup clash with Tottenham in January at White Hart Lane.

On the international stage, Wallace has one cap for Scotland which came in 2009 against Japan having been capped at Under-18, 19 and 21 level.
