He made his Premier League debut in an away win at Norwich at the beginning of October 2012.

Having signed a long term contract, he was loaned to Derby on 22nd October 2014 for the remainder of the season. He helped Derby to the Championship play-off final, making 34 appearances.

In 2014/15 he was loaned to West Bromwich Albion. He made 24 appearances before falling out with new Baggies manager Tony Pulis

At the time of his transfer to Norwich, he had been capped 10 times by England at Under-21 level.

Wisdom made his Norwich debut on 25th August 2015 in the 2-1 win at Rotherham in the Capital One Cup. He then came on as substitute in the 3-0 Premier League debut to Southampton on 30th August 2015 after Steven Whittaker was sent off. Wisdom made 14 appearances for City in 2015/16 as the Canaries were relegated from the Premier League.

On 31st August 2016, he was loaned to Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg depite being tipped to join former manager Brendan Rogers at Celtic. He helped Red Bull retain the Austrian title.

On 13th June 2017, it was reported that Derby was preparing a £2million bid for Wisdom which could rise to £4.5million with add-ons etc. This became reality on 3rd July 2017.

On Sunday 28th June 2020 Wisdom had been visiting a family member. At around 4:30am he was approached by four men and stabbed to the head and buttocks. He underwent an operation and was in hospital until 3rd July 2020.

He departed Derby at the end of the 2020/21 season when his contract expired. Although he trained with the financially stricken side during the summer of 2021, he did not re-sign.

He had trials with Portsmouth, Birmingham, Sheffield United and Polish club Warta Poznan before signing for Warrington Town on the National League North on 22nd September 2023.
