Wilson handed new Pompey deal

Wilson has established himself as a regular in the Pompey back-line

this season following a string of high-profile departures, the last

of which proved to be Younes Kaboul’s move to Tottenham Hotspur

before the close of the transfer window. The 22-year-old has

partnered Tal Ben Haim at the heart of the defence of late and has

now been rewarded with fresh terms on the South Coast. The

versatile stopper had a further year remaining on his previous

deal, but will now be tied to Portsmouth until 2013. He has made a

total of 29 appearances for the club, the bulk of which have been

this season and he is likely to continue to feature regularly for

the remainder of the club’s fight against relegation. Wilson

enjoyed two loan spells at Bournemouth before making his Pompey

debut against Chelsea in the Carling Cup last season. The youngster

went on to feature in the Premier League, FA Cup and UEFA Cup last

term and has made 22 appearances during the current campaign.
