Wesolowski: "I'd Love To Stay Here"

15 April 2014

Midfielder James Wesolowski has given a strong indication to supporters of his intention to stay with Latics.

The 27-year-old has been in fine form this season, scoring five goals. 

He has played a key role in Latics' recent resurgence and the midfielder has admitted he would be happy to extend his stay with the club.

He said: "I've been here three years now and I can see something good is happening. It's been slightly disappointing this season but there have been a lot of positive signs as well. 

"We've started to get back to the stuff we were doing at the start of the season and we're playing our game again. It's promising and I'd love to stay here but it's just a case of getting everything sorted."

Sheffield United's involvement in the FA Cup meant Latics enjoyed a rare week off but it is something Wesolowski did not want.

"We all want to be playing football as much as we can. Sometimes days off is not what you want.

"At the moment, I want to be in everyday trying to improve my game and trying to improve where we are this season," the midfielder continued.

"Days off are important just to get the rest but the more important thing is what we do when we are in."

After opening the scoring in the win against Bradford City, the Australian believes the new formation allows him the freedom to get in advanced positions more.  

"In the new formation we play, it gives me a licence to get forward," added Wesolowski.

"The more times you get in the box, the more things that are going to drop for you. Opportunities are coming my way and it's just a case of finishing them."

"In training, I'm not a bad finisher but I know it's something that I need to improve on. Hopefully I can get a few more before the end of the season."
