Liverpool winger Harry Wilson joins Derby County on season-long loan

Derby County have confirmed the signing of Liverpool winger Harry Wilson on a season-long loan.

Wilson enjoyed a successful loan spell with fellow Championship side Hull City last season, netting seven goals in 13 league appearances at the KCOM Stadium.

The youngster made his first appearance for Wales during their China Cup outing in May, and managed to grab his first goal with a stunning effort against the hosts.

Wilson made his Liverpool debut during an FA Cup third round replay against Plymouth Argyle in January 2017.

But despite not featuring under manager Jurgen Klopp since making his first appearance, he made the move to Hull for the remainder of last season’s campaign.

The 21-year-old will link up with fellow youngster Mason Mount who has also made the switch to Pride Park from Chelsea on a season-long loan.

“Harry brings incredible quality and hunger to the table here and he showed that last year while he was on loan at Hull,” Derby boss Frank Lampard told the club’s official website.

“He’s a full international too and he has a real desire to come here and improve.

“He’s going to be a crucial player for us. I keep talking about creativity and the importance of trying to excite the fans and he’s the sort of player that can do that with the quality that he has.

“For himself too, to have a year at this level and feel an important player at an important club, that will be important.

“Hopefully it’s a great platform for him, but on a selfish note, we have got ourselves a real quality player.”
