Sheffield United are lining up a surprise move for Man United underdog James Wilson.
The striker is out of favour under Jose Mourinho’s management, and fell into the reserve squad rather quickly. And with the recent recovery from a horrific injury he sustained back in October 2016 against Derby County, Wilson is on the lookout for more first-team minutes.
After making a reasonably good comeback from injury, the Englishman’s 3 goals in a relatively meagre 9 reserve-team appearances has made his name popular among some English clubs.
And according to Daily Mail, Sheffield United are keen on securing the youngster’s services in order to hypothetically raise their chances of success in the play-offs.
Further, Sheffield boss Chris Wilder is said to have seen great potential in the United man, and therefore, is contemplating a loan deal.
Though the 22-year-old introduced himself as one of Old Trafford’s best prospects on his debut back in 2014, he fell below the ranks among fellow Red Devils like most youngsters these days.
Nevertheless, the United youth graduate is keen on improving himself, and admitted he’s open to a January move in October of 2017.
“We’ll just have to talk and have a few conversations with the manager and certain people around here,” he said [via Express UK]. “I’m not ruling it out but we’ll come to an agreement over what needs to be done.”
