The 28-year-old centre-back joined Walsall on a season-long loan deal from Sheffield United in July, becoming the Saddlers’ fifth summer recruit.

Born in Chepstow, Wales, the 6’2” defender started out with Bristol City and enjoyed loan spells with Brentford and Cheltenham before joining Oldham in 2014.

After exactly 100 league appearances for the Latics, Wilson moved to Bramall Lane in 2016 and scored once in ten outings as the Blades lifted the League One title last term.

He also has one international cap to his name, having come on as substitute in Wales’ 1-1 draw with Belgium in a 2014 World Cup qualifier.
