Harry Wilson has issued an encouraging update on social media after suffering a shoulder injury in Hull City’s 4-0 FA Cup defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge earlier this month.
The Welshman had enjoyed a bright start to his loan spell with the Tigers before hitting the ground awkwardly whilst winning a penalty against Antonio Conte’s men.
It had been feared Wilson would be out for a month, although the latest signs suggest he could be ahead of schedule and set for an earlier comeback having completed his final rehabilitation session.
Wilson took to Instagram to publish a video of himself firing a shot in training, accompanied by the caption: “Last rehab pitch session yesterday. Happy to have been back in full training with the team today. @alexlo08 with the assists.”
It remains to be seen how close the forward is to a full recovery, with ligament damage often requiring a gradual reintegration.
Wilson is already off the mark for his new club, scoring on his full-debut to help Hull overcome Nottingham Forest 2-0 and subsequently earn a first league win in 10 matches.
The Liverpool loanee will be eager to return to action as he strives to maintain the sparkling form he displayed for Neil Critchley’s U23s prior to his January departure.
Having worked admirably in the shadows of the first-team on Merseyside over the past two years, he of all people deserves a successful second-half of the season and a fair chance to make a lasting impression as senior level.
