Cardiff City signed 23-year-old Liverpool forward with a loan deal

Harry Wilson has joined Cardiff City on a season-long loan deal. The 23-year-old winger, who made his first senior start for the Merseyside giants with Arsenal earlier this month, will spend the 2020-21 season with the Championship club having completed a temporary switch on Friday.

A graduate of the Academy who joined Liverpool at U9 level, Harry has gained plenty of first-team experience during previous loan spells with Hull City, Derby County and, most recently, Bournemouth. Wilson scored seven goals in 31 PL games for the Cherries last campaign and will now continue his development at Cardiff.

The loan of Marko Grujic to Cardiff City helped them win promotion to the PL in 2018 and with much of the same squad remaining, there is a strong belief that with the help of Wales international they can do similar again.

Several PL teams had been interested in the Welsh forward earlier in the summer, but following the deadline on October 5 his only option for a move away from Liverpool was an EFL club.

PL and EFL clubs can still do business until 5 pm on Friday. At 23 and already a full Wales international, the Reds academy graduate is keen for regular first-team football, having contributed seven goals in 31 PL matches for the Cherries last campaign.
