Coventry-born Wilson has had an incredible start to the 2013/14 season, scoring 10 goals in 16 appearances, including braces against Bristol City and Preston North End.

Having suffered previous injury problems whilst at City, Wilson is delighted his stay at his hometown club will be extended. 

Wilson said: "It is great to finally get it done so I can now concentrate on my football and keep scoring goals for the club.

"I am having a great season so far and I want to carry that form on. Also, the team is going places and I want to carry that on.

"I always knew I was capable of the form I am showing. It was a struggle when I was injured for so long and then got other injuries after that.

"But, I think that strengthened my desire to make it happen. I became more mature and stronger, and I think that spell of being injured will serve me well in my career."

Wilson has formed an extremely profitable upfront partnership with fellow striker Leon Clarke with the pair amassing 19 goals between them so far this season.

Currently the top-scorer in the City side, Wilson has credited the entire team for helping him extend his tally over the season.

He added: "When you score, you get the headlines but there is so much more going on. The team create so many chances for me and Leon (Clarke), meaning we always know we have a chance of scoring.

"It is important I don't get carried away with it as I need to maintain my form and keep getting better. 

"I think the team can go places but we must take every game as it comes and keep our feet on the ground. 

"I was always concentrating on my football but off-the-pitch, I was thinking about my contract a lot and was hoping to get it sorted.

"I was always going to sign the contract, it was just a matter of when it would happen."
