Free agent defender James Wilson is training with League One side Ipswich Town.

The experienced centre-back is hoping to earn a contract with the Tractor Boys, according to a report by TWTD.

Wilson, who is 30 years-old, is available for nothing after he left Lincoln City at the end of the season after they won the League Two title.

Ipswich have brought in James Norwood, Tomas Holy and Luke Garbutt since their relegation from the Championship and Paul Lambert’s side are keen on bringing in another centre-back before they start their third tier journey.

Wilson could fit the bill for them as he would add more depth and experience into their backline.

The once-capped Wales international started his career at Bristol City and rose up through their youth ranks. He went onto make 35 appearances for the Robins.

He also enjoyed loan spells away from Ashton Gate with the Brentford and Cheltenham Town before leaving on a permanent deal to join Oldham Athletic in 2013.

Wilson became a key player for the Latics during their time in League One and played 109 times for them before Sheffield United snapped him up in 2016. He played 10 times for the Blades in the third tier under Chris Wilder but spent the second-half of his first season at Bramall Lane on loan at Walsall.

Wilson joined Lincoln in January 2018 after leaving the Blades by mutual consent and played for the Imps since last month. Could Ipswich offer him a contract now?
