Liverpool have turned down a bid for Harry Wilson from Celtic, managed by our former manager Brendan Rodgers.
The 20-year-old winger played during our friendly win over Sydney yesterday, but has barely featured for the first-team under Jurgen Klopp.
This is despite being involved in 28 goals for the Under-23s this term, by far and away the most of any youngster in the country.
Because of Klopp’s refusal to use him, even with Sadio Mane absent, as well as the fact Ben Woodburn’s regularly got minutes, many believed there was no future for the Welsh international.
But the fact Liverpool rejected Celtic’s approach, even via loan, suggests he’ll be part of the first-team squad next term, says the Echo.
For us, this is a strange one. A loan move to Celtic, who’ll be playing in the Champions League under a manager who plays proper football, seems to us a sensible move – as we can’t see Wilson being involved any more next season than this – especially with incoming transfers expected.
Let’s hope we see more of him during pre-season, now.
