Released by Lincoln City in the summer, Wilson has exceeded expectations since signing a short-term deal at Portman Road.

The 30-year-old Welsh centre-back has started 10 of the Blues' 14 games so far this season, with Paul Lambert's table-toppers winning nine of them and conceding just five times.

Lambert said last week that offering Wilson an extended deal was 'certainly something we'll need to look at'.

Sunderland are sixth in the table and currently without a manager having sacked boss Jack Ross earlier this the week. Peterborough - who have Mark Beevers and Frankie Kent as an established centre-half duo - are seventh.
