Mark Wilson: Has made eight appearances for Bristol City

The 28-year-old former Celtic man, whose contract expired earlier this month, has made eight Championship appearances for City this season and has impressed new head coach Sean O'Driscoll enough to be offered a fresh deal.

"Mark Wilson had a clause in the contract that he originally signed allowing for it to be extended," O'Driscoll told the Bristol Evening Post.

"He is still training with us and will be here until the end of the season."

O'Driscoll will watch fellow defender Matthew Bates train next week before deciding whether to offer him a new contract.

The former Middlesbrough man, whose deal ran out earlier this month, has been suffering from gastro-enteritis and has been unable to train.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
