Leeds United have ended their pursuit of Liverpool and Wales attacker Harry Wilson, according to The Athletic journalist David Ornstein.
Speaking on a video via the Tifo Podcast YouTube channel, the former BBC Sport reporter claimed that Marcelo Bielsa decided he wasn’t keen on the 23-year-old.
Wilson’s name is one that appears to crop up every summer with Victor Orta reportedly keen on the former Bournemouth loanee.
But Bielsa shares a different stance to Orta based on Ornstein’s latest update.
“Liverpool will hope to move on a number players round the fringes in the coming weeks,” The Athletic journalist said.
“One of them is Harry Wilson. We know that Leeds United had started working on a deal for him much earlier in the summer. That didn’t develop I think because Marcelo Bielsa decided that Wilson wasn’t the right player for him.”
There you go. Don’t expect Wilson to be a Leeds player before the window closes.
After how the Welshman performed in the Premier League while on loan at Bournemouth last season, we’re not overly keen on him anyway.
Wilson impressed on loan at Derby in the 2019/20 season but was in and out of Eddie Howe’s side last term as he only started 20 of the 38 Premier League matches.
He did score seven goals in the league but do you really want someone from a relegated club who’d not been a regular starter for them?
If Bielsa isn’t keen, then we’re not keen.
