Cardiff win Wilson race

Cardiff City won the race to sign Harry Wilson on loan from Liverpool for the rest of the season.

They beat off strong competition, with neighbours Swansea City, as well as Nottingham Forest, Derby and Norwich all interested in signing the 23-year old.

However, after agreeing a loan fee of £1.2 million, Cardiff have got their man and they are hoping that Wilson can inspire the Welsh team in much the same way that Marko Grujić did in the second half of the 2017 – 2018 season, where he helped them gain promotion from the Championship.

Liverpool turned down an offer of £12 million plus £3 million in add-ons from Burnley last month, insisting that did not match their £20 million valuation of the player.

However, with no other clubs prepared to make a permanent bid to sign him, and with no immediate prospect of him getting regular first-team football at Anfield, the Cardiff loan move has been sanctioned.
