ANOTHER indispensable member of the first-team squad, Marc Wilson is a talented central defender who is equally as comfortable at full-back.

Despite arriving at the Britannia Stadium as a central midfielder, he soon found himself as a key member of the back-four, featuring regularly at left-back.

Since Mark Hughes' arrival in the summer of 2013 however, the Republic of Ireland international has featured more regularly in central defence.

Competing with the likes of Ryan Shawcross, Philipp Wollscheid and Marc Muniesa for a first-team starting role, Wilson didn't make as many appearances as he would have liked in 2014/15, but will however, be pushing for more action this time round.

That said, the 27-year-old still made 30 appearances in all competitions throughout the term, as well as further establishing himself as a first-team regular for his country.
