In a statement on Derby’s website, Rams boss Pearson said: “We’re delighted to have agreed to bring James Wilson on a season-long loan. I hope that this loan deal will prove to be mutually beneficial for all parties and I would like to place on record our thanks to Manchester United for allowing James to join us. He is an energetic player who will add to our existing attacking options.”
The 20-year old has spent last season on loan at Brighton and impressed as he managed to score five goals. Wilson would be keen to challenge for a place in the first team when he arrives next summer after the loan spell.
