Stoke boss Tony Pulis is rumoured to be considering a summer move for Portsmouth’s highly rated midfielder, Jed Wallace, The Mirror reports.

Championship sides Derby County and Brighton are also both said to be interested, but the Premier League sent scouts to watch the 18-year-old bag his fourth goal of the season in this weekend’s victory over Coventry at Fratton Park.

The cash strapped South-coasters are still looking to offload players who will command a fee in their ongoing battle with the financial difficulties that has seen them plummet from the Premier League to the third tier of the football ladder in just two years.

Wallace began his career in non-league football, doing the rounds with clubs like Carshalton Athletic and Farnborough before being snapped up by Pompey’s academy in 2011. Further loan spells back with Farnborough and Whitehawk have prepared him for his breakthrough season in League Two where he has so far made 17 appearances.

A tricky winger with quick feet and a burst of pace, he is comfortable on either wing as well as in the centre. He is currently valued at around £100,000 but could leave for even less as his contract expires later in the year.
