Joined the Mariners on a loan deal from Leeds United during the January transfer window.
Born in Leeds, Wilks signed a scholarship for his home-town club in 2015 following a number of impressive performances for Leeds' Under-18s. After a number of eye-catching performances for the club's youth sides, former coach Garry Monk drafted Mallik into the first team squad before signing his first professional contract late in December 2016.
Mallik returned to Elland Road from a loan spell with Accrington Stanley last month, after spending the first half of the season at the club.
Wilks played 24 times for Stanley, scoring five goals before returning to his parent club after playing against the Mariners as a substitute in December.
