MARK WILSON is focused on extending his stay at Dundee United beyond the new year.

The former Celtic and Scotland defender is back at Tannadice for a second spell having left Bristol City in the summer and is enjoying his football.

Wilson, who is contracted until January and has become an important figure for Jackie McNamara's side in recent weeks, said: "I need to stay in the team and keep myself in the manager's plans but, yes, I'd love to stay longer. I feel this could be a really good season for me."
