Harry Wilson completes Bournemouth loan move from Liverpool

Harry Wilson completes Bournemouth loan move from Liverpool

The Liverpool winger Harry Wilson has joined Bournemouth on a season-long loan after Eddie Howe identified the Wales global as an ideal replacement for David Brooks.

The 22-year-old has developed a strong partnership with Callum Wilson, and also proved impressive cover for Wilson in the past.

The Cherries are keen to bring the Wales worldwide to the Vitality Stadium, and have made an official approach to sign the 22-year-old before Thursday's transfer deadline.

Wilson, who came through the ranks at Anfield and can play wide or centrally, scored 17 goals in 46 games on loan at Derby County last season as they reached the Championship playoff final.

Wilson said he was excited to now get his chance in the Premier League.

Wilson, who previously impressed in the second tier on loan at Hull City, returned to feature in Liverpool's tricky pre-season, scoring in friendlies against Borussia Dortmund and Lyon.

"With the style of play that Bournemouth are likely to play I feel that I can fit right in and help the team a lot".

Cherries boss Eddie Howe has enquired about a loan deal for the Welshman after losing winger David Brooks to an ankle injury for 3 months.

However, the Reds are hoping to offload him for the season with Liverpool looking for guarantees that the talented Wilson will play. This has led many Liverpool fans to believe that Wilson has the potential to break into Liverpool's first-team squad.

Premier League fantasy: Sign up now!
