Lambert: Wilson Contract Extension Something We Need to Look At
Thursday, 3rd Oct 2019 13:28
Town boss Paul Lambert has praised central defender James Wilson’s performances since he joined the club in the summer and says extending the Welshman’s short-term contract beyond January is something that needs to be looked at.
The 30-year-old joined the Blues on trial in the summer and did enough to be offered a five-month deal which runs until New Year's Day.
Having made his debut at Burton on the opening day Wilson, who had departed Lincoln by mutual consent earlier in the summer, has now made eight starts.
Asked whether the 20-year-old was unlucky not to be involved last weekend as the Blues beat Tranmere 4-1, Lambert said: “Yes, but he's a kid, and I think you've got to remember he's only a kid and he has to learn the good things and the bad things of football.
“He's done great when he's been played, and he's done really well when he hasn't played, he's trained really well. He's come on leaps and bounds, he really has. He’s done really good and whenever I play him, he's never let us down.”
