Manchester United U23 star James Wilson is looking to leave the club on loan this month in search of regular first-team football.
Wilson has been in and out of the Man United U23s set-up for the past few seasons and the number of loan moves he’s completing seems to just be delaying the inevitable, a permanent move away.
According to the Manchester Evening News, not only is Wilson not in first-team plans this season, but he hasn’t got a future under Jose Mourinho after the United manager selected Joshua Bohui and Mason Greenwood over him for the pre-season tour of the United States.
Wilson made his United debut at the end of the 2013-14 season, scoring a brace against Hull City at Old Trafford which kick-started the hype surrounding his talent, but injuries have tarnished his development since.
Since that stunning debut, he’s embarked on loan spells at Brighton & Hove Albion, Derby County and Sheffield United but has struggled to make an impact in each of them.
Now he’s said to be looking for a new challenge in the Championship, although there’s firm interest in his services up in Scotland, with Aberdeen thought to be frontrunners for his signature.
