Bolton Wanderers have announced that young centre forward Conor Wilkinson has extended his Bolton Wanderers contract to 2018.

The former Millwall man has penned a new deal giving him an extra two years at the club.

The contract extension was confirmed on his own dad's twitter account @tonywilks72:

The player has clearly done enough to impress Neil Lennon since the manager arrived, and has spent time on loan at Chester, Torquay and Oldham in the last 14 months.

Under former manager Dougie Freedman, Wilkinson made his debut for Wanderers in the 3-2 League Cup victory over local minnows Bury.

He has also made an appearances for the Republic of Ireland Under-21 side this season, following impressive performances for the Under 17 and Under 19 teams since making his bow at international level.

Bright things are expected of Wilkinson and this latest deal gives him the platform to become the best he can be.
