James Wilson looks forward to getting his career back on track with loan move

Manchester United academy product James Wilson has been discussing his recent loan move to Sheffield United and claims he’s looking forward to playing regularly once more.

Wilson had famously made his debut under interim manager Ryan Giggs after David Moyes got sacked for a horrible campaign that saw the former Champions end the season in 7th place.

The young Englishman scored two goals to quickly become loved by United fans much in the same way Marcus Rashford has done in recent years.

However, he never pressed on since that debut for a number of reasons having suffered injuries, loss of form and of course the change in managers.

The striker though is keen to put it all behind him and at the age of 22 can still become a top player if he can press on with his career.

According to the Express, James said: “Obviously, a lot has happened since I made my debut. It’s just getting it back on track now.

“It was a big back step as far as my career is concerned but I’m back on the up now so hopefully this will help me jumpstart my career.

“It’s tough for me to see [other academy prospects break through at United], especially when I’ve been out injured, and think it could have been me.

“I shouldn’t dwell on it. It’s tough to see that but I’m confident I can make something out of this.”

Rashford, Axel Tuanzebe, Scott McTominay, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Andreas Pereira and even recently Angel Gomes have seen themselves become involved in the first team in one form or the other.

James Wilson could’ve also been one of those players to become a regular Manchester United player had it not been for a series of unfortunate events.

Pacy and deadly in front of goal, the young Englishman would’ve made a good addition to the club’s squad, particularly as he’s a natural striker.

Wilson’s move to Sheffield is seen as an ideal transfer in the hopes that it could spark a return to his old form and perhaps get a sniff of first team action when he’s back.
