Liverpool cut short youngster’s League One loan spell

Teenage starlet Harry Wilson has been recalled by Liverpool from his loan spell at Crewe Alexandra after he struggled to hold down a regular first-team spot, say the Daily Mail.

Wilson was due to stay at League One outfit Crewe until January 5th. However, Anfield Under-21 manager Michael Beale has decided to recall the 18-year-old after he made just seven appearances.

Beale said of his side’s decision to cut-short the youngster’s loan spell at Gresty Road: “He’s started three of the last five at Crewe and then he didn’t play at the weekend for whatever reason so the rule is he can come back and play. He’s really enjoyed his time down there and it’s a chance now for us to have him for a week and make a decision that is best for everybody.”

Crewe manager Steve Davis appeared to criticise Wilson by insisting he did not do enough to maintain a first-team spot.

Of Wilson’s move back to Liverpool, Davis said; “When he’s been given his opportunity he hasn’t quite done enough to stay in the team. But like any young player coming in to a team it’s difficult and it can take a while to find your feet and keep your place. He’s an exciting player, he showed glimpses of quality and he will get his chance so it’s up to him to take it.”
