The Mirror.

The former Nottingham Forest man has been impressive of late for the Bhoys, helping them in their successful Champions League campaign.

Three Lions boss Hodgson is believed to have taken note of this, and has placed the 27-year-old on his standby list for his coming fixtures.

Although he has a wealth of options at his disposal, the former West Brom and Liverpool coach believes that Wilson’s regular first-team football gives him a competitive edge of his rivals.

United pair Chris Smalling and Phil Jones are seen as future stars, but a lack of regular playing time, either through injury or competition, is said to be a worry for Hodgson.

The Celtic man was particularly impressive during the SPL champions’ recent ties with Barcelona, demonstrating his pace, ability and bravery.

Hodgson reportedly told representatives of the Glasgow-based club that their man is high in his thoughts and could receive a first international cap in the not too distant future.

Wilson started his career with Notts County before switch to Preston North End in 2006.

After a successful spell with the Lilywhites, he was snapped up by Forest, where he went on to make over 100 appearances.

He agreed a pre-contract deal with Celtic in 2011, and has been impressive in Scotland.
