Manchester United striker James Wilson is set to stay on at Old Trafford for the foreseeable future, according to Wolves boss Kenny Jackett.

As reported by BBC Sport, Jackett has revealed that the Red Devils are set to keep the talented forward 'for the time being'.

Wilson, 19, is recognised as one of the leading young attackers in England, but has failed to feature for the club throughout the course of the season so far.

Unsurprisingly, a whole host of sides have been linked with the striker, but it appears that United want to keep him despite it initially appearing that he could depart Manchester on a short-term basis.

When speaking about the future of Wilson, Jackett said: "The information is he's not available. Manchester United are keeping him for the time being.

"There has been a number of clubs who have enquired about him and at one stage they had been saying perhaps he could go."

Right to keep him

There's no way Wilson should be available at this stage. Ultimately, with Wayne Rooney currently on the sidelines, the England Under-21 ace could yet have a key role to play in the proceedings over the coming weeks.

The teenager is in need of regular game time, however, so it would make sense for the United hierarchy to hand him a temporary move later on in the season.

He's certainly an exciting talent and may well go on to enjoy a successful career at Old Trafford, but it's crucial that Louis van Gaal gives him the platform to prove his credentials. In Wilson, Anthony Martial and Memphis Depay, the Red Devils possess a number of young attacking stars.
