"I'm a Coventry City player. I signed a new contract this season. It is all rumours." - Coventry City's Callum Wilson

1 May 2014

The City striker is also looking forward to ending the season with a positive result at Sheffield United...

Coventry City striker Callum Wilson has dismissed rumours and newspaper speculation that he is set to leave the Sky Blues in the summer.

The 21-year old has had an incredible break-through season with City, having scored 22 goals in all competitions this season and was named in the PFA League One Team of the Year this week.

The City Academy product has made 40 appearances this season despite suffering a dislocated shoulder during the 3-1 win over Rotherham United which kept him out for two months.

Wilson is in line to start against Sheffield United in the final game of the season on Saturday and whilst speaking at the pre-match press conference, he took the opportunity to dismiss any summer speculation.

The City striker said: "I'm a Coventry City player. I'm under contract here and I signed a new contract in November so I'm here for another two years.

"Obviously, it is all rumours and speculation so just let them carry on. As far as I'm concerned, I'll be here next season.

"I've got my off-season programme to stick to and my dates to come back for pre-season training as I'm coming back as normal.

"At the beginning of this season, I was expecting to make 20 appearances and score around ten goals but I blew that out of the water early doors. I still think there is more to come from me though."

City travel to Bramall Lane on the final day of the 2013/14 League One season having already guaranteed League One football next season with the 1-1 draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

With safety already guaranteed, Wilson is looking forward to playing with a freedom against the Blades as City look to end the season with a positive result.

He added: "We want to go there and win the game. We're not going to turn up there thinking it is the end of the season and a chance to take it easy.

"We're footballers and we want to go there to get a result. We want to be as high as we can in the table so it would be good if we can achieve that.

"We were rock-bottom at the start of the season and we have come a long way since then so we want a league position which reflects that."
