The Scotland international, who has played for a host of clubs including Leigh, Widnes, Wigan and Wakefield, amongst others, is 36, but feels he still has plenty to offer in League 1.
“I would like to play on next year,” Wilkes told the North West Evening Mail.
“That’s to be finalised yet with Barrow, but I would like to go round again another year. I enjoy playing and I would miss it.
“I have got a decent job and I managed to get an education while playing, so it’s a case of not being about the money, it’s just about playing and enjoying the game.
“I think if I retired at the end of this year I would regret it for the rest of my life.
“It is not just about what I have offered on the field, I think working together with Paul Crarey and the other coaches we have created a better attitude within the camp.
