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."

The Professional Footballers Who Never Play Football by Broganonthewing
There have been many changes to the English game in the last 40 years. The majority of these changes, if not all of them have all been influenced or dictated by money, both the making and saving of it.
Catch-19 by LegendRay
How many others on the site remember April 15 1961, the day, as TWTD recalls, when Town last beat Lincoln away in the league?
Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan
I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
