Liverpool youngster Harry Wilson has had a successful start to life at Derby County, and has thanked manager Frank Lampard for helping him feel at home at Pride Park.

The winger has already put in his name in the hearts and minds of Derby County fans for a long time to come, thanks to his incredible free kick that helped The Rams on their way to defeating Manchester United on penalties in the Fourth Round of the Carabao Cup.

Wilson has been living with fellow loaned in star Mason Mount in his early times at Derby County, and have both earned call ups to the Welsh and English national team respectively thanks to their good form.

The Liverpool starlet was full of praise for the rookie manager in an interview with The Mirror.

“He’s been great,” Wilson said.

“I spoke to him on the phone before I came to Derby. What he told me about how he wanted his team to play made me realise it was the right club for me.

“Since I’ve been there I have learned a lot. The way we have played in the last month or so has shown how we have progressed as a team.

“I feel fit and strong and am really enjoying my football at the minute.

Wilson also discussed his roommate Mount, and how the two are getting along.

“I live with Mason and he has been great for us too and is scoring and assisting. He has deserved his call-up.

“He is a great lad, a top professional and good to live with, but a bit messy.

“Hopefully the gaffer doesn’t come around soon because it’s a bit dirty at the minute! It’s just the two of us there, his side is the messy side and I try to keep mine clean.

“We go to the cinema ­together, go shopping, go out for food and we try to do that with a couple of our ­team-mates as well. We are setting up a Derby Come Dine With Me .”

The Welshman could be playing against Spain tomorrow night, and Wales will face Albania next week in their UEFA Nations League matches.
