Hull City

Wilson Has Plenty Of Reasons To Impress

01 February 2018
Harry Wilson has arrived at the KCOM Stadium determined to make his loan move from Liverpool a success.

Wilson joined the Tigers on deadline day, with the young winger an exciting addition to Nigel Adkins’ squad.

As well as looking to impress Adkins to earn a place in his starting eleven and help the team in their battle for Championship survival, the 20-year-old will also be aiming to give Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp a look into the future after signing a long-term deal with the Anfield club ahead of his loan move to East Yorkshire.

And if all that wasn’t enough, as an aspiring Welsh international who became the youngest ever player to represent his country at senior level back in 2013, Wilson has another boss to impress with Ryan Giggs having recently taken over as Wales manager.

It all gives Wilson plenty of reasons to be at his best in a black and amber shirt over the next few months.

“I was keen to make the move to Hull City and playing in the Championship is a challenge that I’m looking forward to,” said Wilson.

“The manager here has told me to come here and enjoy it, and I really want to do well and help this team. I’m up for the fight that we find ourselves in. With some of the performances that the team has put in over the last few weeks, it hasn’t been a reflection of where we are in the league. If we can keep putting those performances in, I’m sure we can move ourselves away from the bottom three.

“In terms of the manager at Liverpool, he is a great man-manager and he always has time for his players. He respects every player in the same way. I had a few chats with him and I was happy to come to Hull.

“I’m also hoping that this move will help me to get into the new Wales manager’s thoughts. I’m with the U21s at the minute, but I’ve been involved with the first team a few times and I want more of that.

“So there’s two new managers that I have to impress as well as Liverpool and I’m looking forward to giving my best to do that.”

Wilson arrives as one of the game’s hottest young prospects and has been in good form for Liverpool’s U23 side this season, and he is now looking to transfer that form into senior football in a black and amber shirt.

“I’d like to think that I’m fairly sharp as a player and I like to get on the ball to try and make things happen for the team,” continued Wilson.

“I’m left-footed but I don’t really mind where I play on the field. I’ve mainly played on the right for Liverpool, but wherever the managers asks me to play I’ll be happy. If I get in front of goal I’m always confident that I’ll hit the back of the net and I’m hoping to do that in a Hull shirt now.

“In terms of fitness I feel ready and I’ve played pretty much every 90 minutes for Liverpool U23s this season. I can’t wait to get started here!”
