Liverpool stance on Harry Wilson future after Jurgen Klopp sanctioned Bournemouth loan | Football | Sport
Wilson’s stay at Vitality Stadium is his fourth loan stint since signing a professional contract with Liverpool in 2014.
Under Brendan Rodgers, Wilson was loaned out to Crewe Alexandra but was recalled four months later once Klopp took charge at Anfield.
After two years among the first-team and Under-23s set-up, Wilson was named captain of the development side.
A six-month loan spell at Championship side Hull City in 2018 showed the winger could mix it at senior level, with seven goals in 14 games.
Last year’s performances at Derby County hammered home that perception as the 22-year-old scored 18 goals and provided six assists under Frank Lampard.
It was believed he could become a squad player at his parent club this season but Wilson was once again loaned out, this time to Bournemouth.
A key part of the deal, unlike some other loanees Liverpool have around Europe, is that the Cherries have no option to buy.
That decision was made because Klopp believes the Wales international has a future at Anfield.
Wilson has impressed under Eddie Howe, scoring three goals in five top-flight games so far.
His first goal came against Aston Villa in the second gameweek of the season, after which Klopp sent him a message via text.
It was said to be a selfie of Klopp smiling which read: “Well done – we’re all delighted for you.”
