Wallace originally signed for Sunderland on the 31st August 2006 from Celtic by Roy Keane, and scored the winner on his debut against Derby. Wallace was a first team regular until falling out of favour with Roy Keane, it was reported that Keane would listen to any offers for Wallace. But in January 2008 Wallace suffered a setback in damaging his knee ligaments, which caused him to miss the rest of the 07/08 season.

Wallace joined Preston North End on loan at the start of this current season having impressed boss Alan Irvine, making 26 appearances and scoring 3 goals.

Wallace has signed a four and a half year deal, for an undisclosed fee.
