Manchester United agree to let another forward leave on loan

Manchester United youngster James Wilson is on the brink of a move away from Old Trafford, with the Mirror reporting that the striker is to be loaned out to a Championship club.

The English tabloid report that Louis van Gaal is willing to let the forward leave for a temporary move away from the club.

It is understood that a Championship side are believed to be the beneficiaries of the Dutch coach’s decision, with the Mirr0r reporting that Derby County are likely to acquire the forward.

Wilson made a handful of encouraging outings for the Red Devils last term, but is yet to feature yet this season.

While van Gaal offloaded Adnan Januzaj and Robin van Persie this summer, and allowed Radamel Falcao to leave the club, Wilson appears to have drifted from the manager’s first-team plans.

The coach has brought in both Memphis Depay and Anthony Martial, and has also backed Marouane Fellaini to thrive in an attacking role for the north-west heavyweights this season [The Guardian].

A combination of these three players, plus Wayne Rooney, means that Wilson’s first-team options are sure to be limited at Old Trafford this term.

A move away from United will ensure that Wilson—who is still only 19—can get a good season of first-team football under his belt.
