Ben Wilson missed a large chunk of last season through injury.

Albion under-21 forward Ben Wilson has signed a new one-year contract with the club.

The 20-year-old said, “I am buzzing to be here for another year and I am delighted that the club has shown that faith in me. I want to hit the ground running in pre-season so I am in the best shape possible for the start of the new season.

“It was really tough being out injured for most of last season. You’re watching everyone doing what you want to be doing and then when you come back into the group you’re playing catch up. I was really happy to get back on the pitch.

“This coming season I want to be getting as much game time as possible and playing at a consistent level. I know I can progress from there.”

The Northern Ireland under-21 international signed for Albion in 2018 from Coleraine.

He made eight Premier League 2 appearances last season, scoring once.
