Hull City boss Nigel Adkins is hoping he can keep hold of youngster Harry Wilson on loan from Liverpool next season.
Wilson has had a huge influence in keeping Hull City afloat in the latter stages of the season. The winger finding form for his temporary club at the right time. Having joined on loan from Liverpool in the final hours of the January transfer window looking for more minutes, the experience will have been beneficial to both parties.
With the likes of Mane, Salah & Firmino in the current Liverpool line up. The chances of Wilson challenging the first team next season are low. So another year playing Championship football is the perfect remedy.
Hull will be hoping for an improved campaign next season. Suffering from the momentum of relegation last season they have struggled to compete in the Championship. Adkins and his men can all but guarantee safety if they beat Bristol City at the weekend. Failure to win could still result in safety depending on other results.
They currently site 18th in the table, on 47 points. But Adkins has steadied a rocking ship since he joined the club. Managing 9 win, 7 draws and 10 losses since he took the reigns at Hull.
Wilson has been a huge part of that upturn in form, scoring 5 goals in 10 Championship appearances. After this campaign ends he will be returning to his parent club, but Adkins is more than happy for the young winger to return;
“The four lads who have been on loan have done great but they’ll go back to their parent clubs and do their pre-season with them.
They’ll decide if they’re going to stay in the first-team group or, as they should do, go and get vital match experience in the Championship”
Despite a struggling campaign this time around, Wilson could return to Hull next season to help push for promotion. He has the ability to do so, and will be working under a coach who has proven he has what it takes to promote teams and develop players.
