Liverpool reportedly make right decision on Harry Wilson's future
Liverpool have ‘no plans’ to recall young Welsh winger Harry Wilson from his loan spell at Derby County, according to John Percy of the Daily Telegraph.
Rams boss Frank Lampard recently revealed that Liverpool do have the option to recall their under-23 star in January, and that there will be a conversation between the two clubs once the transfer window opens.
Since moving to Derby on loan in the summer, Wilson has grabbed eight goals and two assists across 18 appearances in all competitions.
His move to Derbyshire came in search of regular first-team football, and followed a successful six-month loan spell with Hull City where he scored seven and assisted four in thirteen appearances.
Wilson signed a new deal with Liverpool in the summer, and after discussions with the hierarchy, it was decided a temporary switch would be best for his career.
The 21-year-old has gained a wealth of experience already playing under Chelsea legend Lampard, and has been in fine form for Derby.
He has played almost 1,400 minutes of football so far this season, which is nearly double that of summer signing Xherdan Shaqiri who naturally leapfrogged Wilson in the picking order upon his arrival from Stoke City.
You cannot put a price on game time for young players, and with the progression Wilson is showing at Derby playing regular football, Liverpool will almost certainly reap the rewards in the long run by allowing him to continue his loan spell this season.
