Manchester United young striker James Wilson have joined Championship club Derby on a season-long loan as both clubs have reached an agreement for the 20-year old, the club has confirmed in a statement.

The 20-year old is one of the talented players from Manchester United and was impressive under former manager Louis van Gaal when he broke into Manchester United senior squad.

Manchester United have added Zlatan Ibrahimovic to their striker force this summer and now the English U-21 international is below the likes of Anthony Martial, Wayne Rooney, Marcus Rashford besides Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the pecking order. New manager Jose Mourinho have made decision over his future and has sanctioned the player an exit which helps the player in his development.

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.

James Wilson has first come into the limelight when he scored a double against Hull City in his debut match during the end of 2013-14 season.
