Wilson: I'd Love to Stay at Town
Monday, 14th Oct 2019 16:50
Central defender James Wilson says he’d love to stay with the Blues beyond the end of his short-term contract, which is up on New Year’s Day, but that no discussions have yet taken place.
"I'd love to stay," he told the club site. “There haven't been any discussions yet but hopefully it will get sorted, that's what I'd like to happen. There's no place I'd rather be right now.”
Speaking about extending the 30-year-old’s deal earlier this month, manager Paul Lambert said: “He's certainly doing himself no harm whatsoever and I'm pretty sure it's something we need to look at.”
Wilson joined the Blues in the summer following a trial having left Sincil Bank by mutual consent earlier in the close season.
Having made his debut on the opening day at Burton, the Wales international has now taken his appearance total to nine starts.
However, the one-time Bristol City trainee will miss Sunday’s live Sky game at Accrington Stanley as he is suspended following his red card at Fleetwood the weekend before last.
"I was gutted because I know I was on a booking but I didn't think I did enough to justify getting sent off," he added.
"That was frustrating but there are plenty of games still to go and hopefully I can play my part going forward."

Politics and Ipswich Town by ElephantintheRoom
You might just have noticed that the TWTD Forum is awash with political comment. Annoying for some perhaps, who only want to discuss Norwood’s fitness – but surely no bad thing, given the stark choices facing us at a critical time in the country’s history?
The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner by ThatMuhrenCross
Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.
History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
