Harry Wilson signs new Liverpool contract

The Liverpool Echo reports the highly rated talent is to receive a new contract from the Reds before they consider any loan offers, while journalist Paul Joyce of the Times cited Aston Villa, Leeds, Derby, Stoke, Hull, Middlesbrough, Norwich, Preston, QPR, Reading, Swansea and WBA all as being interested in a deal. Having emerged through the youth ranks of Liverpool, he was promoted to their senior side but owing to the plethora of stars Jurgen Klopp has at his disposal, he has failed to cement his place in the side.

"I'm delighted to sign the new deal", Wilson told the club's official website.

After impressing on loan last season with Hull City and making an encouraging start in pre-season, Liverpool Football Club has extended Harry Wilson's contract.

His move to the KCOM Stadium saw him fire seven goals in 13 appearances for the Tigers to help Nigel Adkins' side narrowly avoid relegation.

Adding the Switzerland worldwide can provide much-needed cover for star forward Mohamed Salah in particular. Shaqiri is believed to be keen on a move to Anfield but could be offered the chance to return to Italy.

He won the first of his four Wales caps in 2013, at 16, and has made one substitute appearance for Liverpool.

His impressive season for both Hull and Neil Critchley's Under 23's could mean that Wilson may feature more for the Reds next season, however, the additions of Fabinho and Naby Keita, as well as other imminent arrivals, could make it hard for Wilson to even make the substitutes bench next season. At the moment I am getting the chance to train at Melwood and get minutes in the friendlies and my aim is to impress the manager and stay here.

I feel if I do well enough here, everything else will take care of itself.
