Leeds United’s floundering interest in Harry Wilson can now, surely, be put to bed. The Sun is reporting that the Liverpool winger will be playing in the Premier League next season.
The Sun reported last month that Leeds were in the race for the Welshman. A loan or permanent deal was said to be in the offing.
However, it has been suggested since that Liverpool feel Wilson is ready for a step up in class.
The latest report from The Sun goes one step further. It seems to suggest that Wilson himself is also of the belief he is ready to play in the Premier League.
That would rule out a move to Derby County and, indeed, Leeds United.
Wilson thrived at Derby last season, scoring 18 goals and assisting six. His performances even saw The Mirror suggest Liverpool would want £21 million for any permanent deal to take place.
Wilson is probably right to believe in his Premier League ability and Leeds will be disappointed that this is the case.
But it is also a blessing in disguise. Leeds can move on from Wilson and begin to look at other options in the wide areas for this summer.
Hopefully, an equally adept performer can be targeted.
