Since the loan window opened in the Football League, a hoard of clubs have been knocking on Old Trafford’s door, begging to loan in Manchester United’s top striking youngster, James Wilson.
Wolverhampton Wanderers have looked the most likely to acquire the striker in recent times due to United’s interest in one of their players.
The Red Devils want to take Niall Ennis into their youth set up, reportedly willing to pay about £1 million for the 16 year old.
Wolves lost a huge piece of their attack this summer by letting Bakary Sakho leave on a free. He was involved in 25 of Wolves’ Championship goals last season, scoring more than he set up.
His sheer pace and strength caused Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew to take notice and now Sakho plays his football at Selhurst Park.
Wolves need to replace Sakho’s pace and striking ability to improve on their current situation in 15th. James Wilson looked to be the perfect target but since the speculation, Wolves’ coach, Kenny Jackett, has spoken out.
As reported by The Guardian, Jackett has stated:
“Signing James Wilson on loan?”
“The information is, he is not available. United are keeping him.”
So it seems that United’s striker situation will stay the same, and they will have just one back up to their first choice strike force.
