Captain Luke Wilkinson has said he wants to stay at Yeovil Town beyond the end of his contract which expires in the summer.

The centre half, who was born in Wells, is in his third season at Huish Park and told the Gloverscast‘s Ian Perkins that he had “loved every minute” of his time with the club.

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s home match with Torquay United, Wilko said: “For me, it’s about playing as well as I can each week, I am out of contract (at the end of the season) so I want to get something sorted.

“I am just trying to perform as best as I can for the club and try and push on and be up and around it and you never know what is going to happen.”

Asked about his future plans, he added: “I have loved every minute of my two-and-a-half years here, it’s been brilliant, I love the place, I am local to the area, so if Yeovil decided they wanted to offer me something I would love to.

The 31-year-old admitted the Glovers dipped below the standards they had set themselves in the past couple of months as they collapsed to a 3-0 defeat at Torquay on Boxing Day.

The postponement of the derby with W*ymouth on December 28 due to COVID-19 in the opposition camp denied them an opportunity to bounce immediately back, but Wilkinson said training had been “intense” this week.

He said: “For us it’s just the next game, that is what’s been drummed in to us t, we were disappointed with Boxing Day and we will look to put it right, it just happens to be Torquay again.
