Leeds United have been handed a boost in their loan pursuit of Liverpool starlet Harry Wilson, with Jurgen Klopp stating the youngster will be allowed to leave the club on loan this summer.

According to a tweet from Mirror journalist David Maddock, the Welsh teenager is subject to interest from the likes of Derby County, Middlesbrough and Stoke City as well as Leeds United, but will certainly be allowed to depart Anfield on a temporary basis this summer.

The 21-year-old has been highly-rated in the Liverpool set up for years now but broke into the public spotlight with his performances on loan at Hull City last season, where he scored seven goals in 13 appearances to help steer the Tigers away from the drop zone.

Wilson even earned four senior Wales caps for his efforts, after receiving caps for the under-17, under-19 and also under-21 squads over his teenage years.

It’s clear to see how much potential Jurgen Klopp sees in the 21-year-old too, rewarding him with a bumper five-year contract, essentially tying Wilson down to the Merseyside club for the foreseeable future.

The news that the highly-rated youngster will be heading out on loan once again may be disappointing to hear for many Liverpool fans, who have hoped to see the winger feature for the first-team in the near future, potentially following in the footsteps of fellow academy graduate Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Leeds remain just one of a number of clubs interested at the present time, but this news has certainly boosted their hopes of bringing the youngster into the club.
