Man United allow striker to leave on loan

Manchester United have agreed to let young striker James Wilson move to Championship side Sheffield United on loan until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old burst onto the scene in 2014 when caretaker boss Ryan Giggs handed the then 18-year-old his senior debut, and the talented youngster repaid the faith shown in him by scoring two goals in a 3-1 win over Hull City.

Wilson was predicted to achieve big things at Old Trafford, but a loss of form and a serious knee injury last season when out on loan at Derby County have hampered his progress.

United manager does not consider the former England U21 international ready to play a role in his plans, and has agreed to allow the youngster to gain some valuable first-team experience with Chris Wilder’s promotion chasing side.
