The former Lincoln man arrived at Portman Road in the summer on a short-term deal but he has quickly proven his worth to the team by making eight league appearances to help Paul Lambert’s men to second place in League One.
Therefore, tying him down on a longer contract seemed inevitable and the Tractor Boys announced on their official site that a new agreement had been reached.
Will Ipswich go up as champions this season?
Wilson will remain at the club until the summer of 2021 and the club have the option to extend that by a further 12 months if they want to.
Even though he wasn’t a big-name arrival, the fans are very pleased with how Wilson has settled and they were delighted to see the 30-year-old sign the deal.
Here’s some of the reaction to the update from Twitter…
Yeah, happy with that.

A really good signing, was a little unsure of him at first but hopefully a steady pair of hands 👍 Well done James, please celebrate with a hatrick on Saturday!
