'Great young signing' – Exclusive: Pundit says manager has big reason to send star to Leeds
We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United…
Paul Robinson has said that Liverpool winger Harry Wilson would be a “great young signing” for Leeds.
Wilson has been linked with a move to Leeds and admitted that he has a big decision to make this summer.
Robinson said that Jurgen Klopp would have a big reason to send Wilson to Leeds on loan – manager Marcelo Bielsa.
Talking exclusively to MOT Leeds News, Robinson said, “Harry Wilson would be a great young signing. A player like that would be ideal as either a permanent or a loan signing, but I’m not so sure Liverpool would be willing to let him go permanently.
“But sides like Liverpool have an abundance of top talent. Because Leeds have Bielsa and because of the way he plays football and works on a daily basis… If Jurgen Klopp is going to let any team have his players, he knows what he’s going to get from Bielsa.

“He knows his players are going to get fit, he knows know they’re going to be worked hard, he knows they’re going to be monitored on a daily basis.
“As well as that, it’s going to be a real draw for young players to come to Leeds because other managers have such high regard for Bielsa and how well they’re going to develop under him.”
Wilson scored 16 goals for Derby in the 18/19 Championship season, including one in the play-off win over Leeds.
He tested himself against Premier League opposition this season, and scored seven goals in 23 top-flight games for Bournemouth.
