“He’s our player for the year” – Frank Lampard insists Harry Wilson will not return to Liverpool early

Derby County’s loaned in star Harry Wilson has been catching the eyes of the football world in recent weeks, and added to his repertoire of free-kick goals with another superb set piece against the Republic of Ireland whilst on international duty with Ryan Giggs’ Wales side.

The Welsh youngster’s performances for Derby County will be thoroughly pleasing to see for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, as the winger continues to impress for both club and country this season.

The 21-year-old’s form has led to worries at Pride Park that parent club Liverpool could choose to bring Wilson back to Anfield for the second half of the season – or potentially back to loan out to a Premier League side. However, Derby County manager Frank Lampard has insisted that Wilson will stay at Pride Park for the rest of the season.

The former Chelsea midfielder told Sky Sports News:

“He’s our player for the year”, said Lampard.

“He’s a Liverpool player for the future. I’ve answered this with Mason Mount before. We are looking after them for a year and hopefully improving them. Liverpool fans shouldn’t worry because hopefully we’ll give them a very good Harry Wilson when he goes back.

“Harry will have a spring in his step; he should do. It was another great free-kick. I thought he played very well in the second half in particular. And that’s what Harry can do, hopefully he can do that for us more.”

Derby County return to Championship action this weekend against League leaders Sheffield United on Saturday evening, and Frank Lampard will be hoping Wilson can emulate the performances he put on for Wales during the international break.
