Louis van Gaal will make James Wilson decision in December

Published Add your comment

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has revealed that he will make a decision over the short-term future of James Wilson in December.

The Red Devils chief, who is preparing his side for tomorrow's Premier League clash with struggling Sunderland, has suggested that he will review the striker's playing time in December ahead of a potential loan move away from the club. 

The talented England Under 21 ace has failed to feature for the first-team this season and was surprisingly left out of the squad for the club's Capital One Cup clash with Championship outfit Ipswich Town on Wednesday night.

With the likes of Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial and even Marouane Fellaini ahead of him in the pecking order, it's far from certain as to whether Wilson will take to the field anytime soon. 

It appears, then, that he could eventually leave United on a temporary basis in the not too distant future.

Loan would be right

Ultimately, Wilson is in need of first-team football. He's arguably one of the leading young strikers in England's elite division, so must be given the platform to prove his credentials. 

In truth, it's unlikely that he's going to star for United on a regular basis, so a loan move appears to be the best option for all involved. There's no reason why he won't go on to achieve great things in the game, but he must establish himself first. It looks set to be an interesting few months for the exciting striker.
