The club’s social media channel @IpswichTown shared the news with its followers, along with a link to their official website’s report on the development.

The 30-year-old came to Portman Road on a free transfer in early August, having departed Lincoln by mutual consent in the summer, and had initially signed a short-term deal of just five months. [via itfc.co.uk]

However, the once-capped Wales international has swiftly become a regular presence in Paul Lambert’s team, making eight starts in Ipswich’s first 11 League One games as well as featuring in the Carabao Cup and EFL Trophy. [via TransferMarkt]

Wilson has won the third most aerial duels per game of any Ipswich player this season (5.6), along with the second highest interceptions per game average in the squad (2.1) and the highest clearances per game average (7.5). [via WhoScored]
