Manchester United striker James Wilson will be going on loan this summer manager Louis van Gaal has confirmed.
The Dutchman also gave an insight into surprise loan outing for Belgian winger Adnan Januzaj who joined Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund on transfer deadline day and the general reason why the club send youngsters out to different clubs to gain more playing time.
“I have said to Januzaj that I will give him opportunities in the position of nine and maybe of 10,” Van Gaal told reporters during his weekly press conference on Friday ahead of the Liverpool match.
“I have done that and then decided that, no, it would be better for him to go to another environment, maybe he will play more with them than me and we can see if he develops himself.
“It is the same thing that I have said to James Wilson. I have said the same thing, only James has to go to a Championship club, so then I can call him back if my striker is injured. Then we need him and then he would have more playing time.
“But for Wilson, another year in the same way as last year is not good for his development. It is not good for Januzaj either. This is why we let players go on loan and we don’t sell, because we believe in the quality of Januzaj and in the quality of Wilson.”
