Manchester United youngster James Wilson has joined Derby County on a season-long loan for the 2016-17 season.
The club official website and the confirmation from Nigel Pearson has informed that the 20-year-old striker will be joining the Championship side in the coming days. Derby has won just one of their last four games and were looking to sign a good striker. Wilson has shown plenty flashes of brilliance in the last season but has failed to hold down a starting 11 position at Manchester United.
Last season Wilson was sent on loan at Brighton and made 27 appearances. Even though he had scored only 5 goals his demand has not diminished among the Championship sides.
He had made a few appearances in Louis Van Gaal’s first season in charge but in spite of showing promise, the youngster will require improving significantly. The club will hope that Wilson improves at Derby and comes back as a better player.
