'I'm feeling fit and good' - Wilson

13 February 2014

The City striker believes he can form a deadly partnership with Nathan Delfouneso when he returns from injury...

Coventry City striker Callum Wilson has revealed he hopes to be in full training next week as he continues his recovery from shoulder surgery.

The Coventry-born forward suffered his injury during the 3-1 win at Rotherham United on New Year's Day.

Wilson was enjoying an incredible season in League One having notched 15 goals in just 27 games for the Sky Blues.

Whilst the rest of the squad enjoyed a day-off, the 21-year old was hard at work in the gym but he believes he is benefiting from it.

Wilson said: "I'm in today, putting in the extra work whilst all the lads are at home as I just want to get back playing football again.

"I'm doing a lot of running. It is good in a way as the last time I was injured, I had to spend a lot of time indoors, away from the squad as it was a more serious injury.

"I'm able to go out and watch training. To be honest, I feel fit and good so hopefully I'll be back training with the lads next week.

"Of course, I'm waiting to get the go ahead from the physio staff as they know best but I'm looking forward to getting the ball at my feet again."

During his time on the sidelines, City went into the transfer market and signed Aston Villa striker Nathan Delfouneso on loan until the end of the season.

Wilson believes Delfouneso is a great signing for the club and is looking forward to linking up with the former England Under-21s man.

He added: "I've missed around six or seven weeks now and a part of me hopes games keep getting called off so I can be involved in them.

"It was good to see Nathan come to the club. Hopefully, when I get back, we can form a good partnership because we're both really quick.

"It might take a bit of time to get it up to speed as we need to understand how each other plays. Once we get training together, that will happen.

"I've seen him play quite a lot, especially for the England Under-21s, so I think we could score quite a lot of goals together."
