Manchester United attacker James Wilson has admitted that he would be open to leaving Old Trafford during the upcoming January transfer window.
Wilson made a huge impact on his debut for Manchester United after scoring a wonderful brace against Hull City during the 2013/14 season and many at the time thought that the young striker would go on to become a regular for the Red Devils’ first team.
Unfortunately though, Wilson failed to establish himself for United due to a host of serious injuries and the Englishman’s hopes of proving his worth last season while on loan at Championship side Derby County was also curtailed after he suffered a serious knee problem exactly a year ago.
Wilson managed to recover from the injury over the close-season and although he was wanted by a host of clubs during the summer, the 21-year-old decided to stay put at Old Trafford in order to regain his full fitness.
Having impressed for the Under-23’s so far this term; Wilson has recently been speaking about his plans for the season and has admitted that he would be open to leaving United during the January transfer window in order to receive regular first team minutes elsewhere.
Wilson told MUTV, “I don’t see why not. Obviously, the summer transfer window has gone and there was a lot of interest. But the staff all came to an agreement that I would stay until January to build on what I’ve already worked for.
“So I think it’s certainly a possibility. We’ll just have to talk and have a few conversations with the manager and certain people around here. I’m not ruling it out but we’ll come to an agreement over what needs to be done.”
