Leeds United have been linked with a move for Liverpool attacker Harry Wilson this summer and some fans got excited after a recent report suggested a move was impending.
The Daily Star claimed that Leeds would have to wait until after the game between the two clubs on Saturday to sign Wilson.
The Echo has said Liverpool are only interested in a permanent deal and don’t want to send their player out on loan again. The Echo also claims that Liverpool want £20m for Wilson.
Athletic journalist Phil Hay was asked about an impending move for Wilson on Monday night and he poured some cold water on the report.
The fan asked, “Are the Harry Wilson rumours correct Phil about us signing him after the Liverpool game?”
Hay replied, “They’ve been interested in him for a while (Orta is a particular fan) but having asked earlier, I don’t think that’s imminent.”

Leeds have their players for PL opener
Leeds fans might be keen to see more signings come in before the Premier League opener on Saturday but the transfer window is open until October – there’s still another month for new players to come in.
In some ways, it might be better for Leeds to hold fire and see how they get on in their first Premier League games before making any more purchases.
At the moment, it seems that they want another winger/number 10 and possibly another centre-back.
Even if Leeds do sign anyone else this week, they won’t make the cut for Saturday.
There’s a fierce debate going on as to whether new signings Robin Koch or Rodrigo will make the Leeds starting XI after just a week with Marcelo Bielsa.
We think that Rodrigo will be on the bench but Koch might make it – we put him about 50/50 and it all depends on how quickly he takes to Bielsa’s coaching and his fitness levels.
