Marc Wilson: Could be set for change of role

The signings of Marc Muniesa and Erik Pieters appear to have put Wilson's place in the team under threat given that all three men can operate at left-back.

But Bowen believes there could be a role for the 25-year-old Republic of Ireland international elsewhere in the side.

"I don't know Marc, but I was very interested to hear his comments when Mark Hughes got the job here," Bowen told The Sentinel.

"He said he was looking forward to the challenge and looking forward to working with the manager.

"From what people tell me about Marc, he wants the ball at his feet and likes to play.

"I don't think it would be doing him an injustice to say in the long term he doesn't see himself as being a left-back.

"He would probably see himself more as a defensive midfielder or a centre-half.

"So I guess he will be looking at the situation and thinking, 'Thanks very much, now I have a chance to show what I am made of where I want to play'.

"Like everyone else he will be starting with a clean slate."
