Liverpool’s Harry Wilson signs new long term deal

The reds have secured a further contract deal with Welsh forward Harry Wilson.

In January, the player signed a long term deal before heading to Hull on loan in the Championship.  He was given opportunities in the first team and fired 7 goals in his 11 starts and 2 sub appearances during the second half of the season.  He turned 21 years old in March.

Now he's back at Anfield as the Liverpool boss runs the rule over him to see if he could feature in the first team in the season ahead or whether he would be better suited for another season on loan.

He first came to LFC's attention aged 9 and joined the Academy at 15.  He made his solitary first team appearance in January 2017 when he replaced Coutinho in the FA Cup 3rd Round win over Plymouth Argyle.

There appears to be plenty of interest with a wide host of Championship clubs keen to do a loan deal, but with Hull having already shown their determination to get him involved they will be high up any potential ladder of loan clubs.

Wilson scored twice in his 45 minutes of pre-season so far when the reds beat Chester FC 7-0 at the weekend.

There will be gradual increases in the quality of opposition in the coming pre-season games to test him.

And with the likes of Danny Ings and Daniel Sturridge facing uncertain Liverpool futures, the attacking cover across the team might be in need of some bolstering.
