1077 Mallik Wilks

Biography

Tall and powerful striker Mallik Wilks joined City on loan from Barnsley in January 2020, making his debut at Derby the following day. He quickly got amongst the goals in a City side that was struggling for wins in a post-Bowen world, making a positive contribution with hard running and skillful dribbling.

Born and raised in the Chapeltown district of Leeds, Wilks came through the academy system at Leeds United and made his first team debut in January 2017 during a FA Cup tie against Sutton United. Wilks signed a lengthy contract at Leeds in August 2017 and proceeded to enjoy three productive loan spells, including a full season at Doncaster Rovers under the guidance of future City manager Grant McCann. During the 2019 close season Leeds made Wilks available for transfer, prompting both City and Barnsley to make offers. Mallik chose to join Barnsley where he made a promising start in a struggling side, but a change of management saw him relegated to the bench and then the reserves, encouraging City to have a second successful attempt to sign him, initially on loan.
