James Wilson took part in training with Manchester United to allay fears he had suffered another injury.
The 18-year-old was taken off at half-time against Tottenham Hotspur’s Under-21s earlier this week in a planned substitution but looked in some discomfort just beforehand after awkwardly landing on his ankle.
Reports suggested Wilson suffered an injury but he was with the first-team for training this week which is great news.
Wilson has battled against injury for the past 12 months and has already suffered a broken finger among other niggling injuries this season. The constant injuries haven’t halted Wilson’s progression into the first team squad but it would be good for him to have a strong run of games without injury.
Keen followers of the academy sides feel Wilson could very much follow in the same footsteps as Adnan Januzaj at United but he needs a good injury free period to help make that happen.
