It seems that Harry Wilson will stay at Derby County for the duration of the season, despite the fact Liverpool have an option to recall him in January.
The Welshman has been in jaw-dropping recent form, scoring wonder-goal upon wonder-goal, netting eight times in 17 appearances for Frank Lampard’s promotion chasers this term.
Derby are in seventh, but are just six points off top and are one of the division’s favourites to go up.
According to John Percy of the Telegraph, Liverpool are very impressed with the 21-year-old’s performances, but have no plans to cut short his move and want to see him continue to gain minutes in the second tier.
#lfc have no plans to recall Harry Wilson from his loan at Derby in January. There is a recall option but highly unlikely to be triggered. Understand Liverpool are delighted with how the loan move is working out #dcfc

Liverpool already have the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Dominic Solanke and Divock Origi expected to only play bit-part roles, so we cannot imagine Wilson would get the minutes his talent deserves should he come back in January. There’s also Rhian Brewster, who has been promised opportunities upon his return to fitness.
In the summer, Wilson will hopefully return to Anfield after top scoring in the Championship and be able to properly compete for minutes in the 2019/20 season.
For us, he’s simply too good not to be given a proper chance.
