Leeds join the race to sign Manchester United striker James Wilson

According to The Sun, Leeds are interested in bringing James Wilson to the club in January, on a short-term loan from Manchester United.

What’s the Story?

Forgotten Manchester United man James Wilson has admitted that he is looking for a temporary move in January, and reports are suggesting that Leeds and Reading are keen on the 21-year-old, who is valued at £1.8million by Transfermarkt.

Speaking to MUTV regarding a possible loan move in January, Wilson said;

“I don’t see why not. Obviously, the summer transfer window has gone and there was a lot of interest.

“But the staff all came to an agreement that I would stay until January to build on what I’ve already worked for.

“So I think it’s certainly a possibility. We’ll just have to talk and have a few conversations with the manager and certain people around here.

“I’m not ruling it out but we’ll come to an agreement over what needs to be done.”

Where’s Wilson?

With so much young talent on the books of top Premier League clubs, it can often be difficult to keep track of exactly where these players are. However, in Wilson’s case, he hasn’t strayed to far from Old Trafford of late.

The 21-year-old spent the 2015-16 season at Brighton, where he impressed, despite the South Coast club failing to achieve promotion.

At the start of the 2016-17 season, Wilson joined Derby on a season-long loan. Unfortunately, the youngster only managed four games before a serious knee injury meant he was forced back to United for treatment.

Wilson has spent much of 2017 recuperating from this injury and is still working his way back to full health in a bid to find a loan club in January.
