Welsh winger Harry Wilson is unlikely to be recalled from his loan at Derby County in January according to John Percy of the Telegraph.
The Reds sensibly had a recall option written into the loan contract of the 21-year-old, providing them something of an insurance policy in case of injuries or a lack of playing time for the player.
It’s understood, however, that Liverpool are delighted with how the move has worked out for Wilson, who spent the second-half of last season on loan at Hull City.
The Wales international has played an integral part in Derby’s campaign to date, scoring eight and assisting two in all competitions for the Rams across 18 appearances.
Wilson’s loan came off the back of a successful spell with fellow Championship side Hull, where he scored seven and assisted four in 14 matches.
The under-23 star penned a new long-term deal before making the summer switch to the Midlands, a move he states Jurgen Klopp agreed would be a good one for him.
He said: “I sat down with Jurgen Klopp at Melwood in the summer and we both agreed after doing well at Hull last season it would be good to be on loan again and playing regularly.”
Wilson says he will be hoping to become a Liverpool regular upon his return, following in the footsteps of teammates Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez.
“I’ll be looking at Trent and Joe hoping I’m playing with them next season.” He added.
