Liverpool are “highly unlikely” to recall Welsh winger Harry Wilson from his loan spell at Derby County, according to Daily Telegraph journalist John Percy.
With young winger Harry Wilson in electric form for Championship side Derby County in the first half of this season, there were worries that parent club Liverpool would look to bring the youngster back to Anfield upon the opening of the January transfer window.
However, it has been revealed that Premier League giants Liverpool have no plans to bring the youngster back to Merseyside half way through his loan spell at Pride Park.
Daily Telegraph journalist John Percy provided the update on his Twitter this afternoon, stating:
#lfc have no plans to recall Harry Wilson from his loan at Derby in January. There is a recall option but highly unlikely to be triggered. Understand Liverpool are delighted with how the loan move is working out #dcfc”
Derby County’s on loan winger Wilson scored his sixth and seventh goals of the Championship season last Saturday as The Rams defeated Swansea City 2-1. In doing so, he also continued his own personal goal of the season competition, hitting a stunning left footed strike beyond Swansea shot stopper Erwin Mulder.
Derby County manager Frank Lampard will be thrilled with the news. The former Chelsea midfielder was full of praise for the young winger after the Swansea game last week.
Lampard spoke to the Derby Telegraph after the game, and was enthusiastic about loan star Wilson:
He’s in good form,” Lampard told the Derby Telegraph.
“Harry’s first goal was a great strike. We know he strikes the ball well. He needs to get his shots away and when he does, he’s a big threat. Both goals were clean, quality strikes.
“You need a moment of magic, and he produced it, but I liked his all-round performance.
“Your eye can easily be drawn to Harry’s strikes but he is a young developing player and I thought his work rate was very good, alongside that of all of our attacking players and midfield players. I thought they worked very hard.
“Harry gets the headlines, and deservedly so for the moments of quality which we know he can produce.
“Harry is a developing player and that’s why it’s good to have him here,” Lampard added.
“It’s so good for him to be here, playing week in, week out, learning little bits of his game.”
