James Wilson was subject to a number of loan bids, but Manchester United decided not to let the player leave, as per Daily Mail.

Manchester United didn’t give into the temptation of loaning out James Wilson due to player’s ongoing recovery from cruciate ligament injury. The young striker has been on the sidelines since picking up his horrible injury in October last year.

However, the player did feature for Manchester United U-23 against Tottenham last week. And even with Wilson back in full training and participating in reserves games, Manchester United are very cautious with their young prospect.

The 21-year-old striker was sent out on a loan spell to Derby County last year, but his injury meant that it was an unproductive spell for the youngster. Wilson had similar fate while on loan to Brighton in 2015-16, when his growth was impeded by illness.

In order to avoid such a scenario again, Manchester United have decided to keep the player at the club and monitor his fitness closely. The Red Devils rate Wilson highly, as they feel he can develop into a fine striker, given an injury-free season under his belt.
