Derby County

Harry Wilson issues honest reason why he joined Derby County



Derby winger Harry Wilson has revealed exactly what persuaded him to join Frank Lampard at Championship side Derby County, who currently sit just a point outside of the play-off places. 

Wilson signed on a season-long loan deal from Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool in a effort to get more regular game time.

Wilson has made nine appearances so far this season, scoring twice for Derby, including a memorable free-kick against Manchester United.

Speaking to the Derby Telegraph, Wilson revealed that playing under the guidance of Frank Lampard, was a vital factor in deciding to come to Derby.

“He’s been great,” Wilson said when asked about Lampard. “I spoke to him on the phone before I came to Derby.

“What he told me about how he wanted his team to play made me realise it was the right club for me.”

Wilson had previously been out on loan at Hull City last season where he made 13 appearances, scoring seven times in a successful loan spell that earned him a new deal at Anfield.

The winger has also been called up to Ryan Giggs’ Wales side for their upcoming matches against Spain and the Republic of Ireland.

The 21-year-old revealed that he would put himself forward to take a free kick for his national side, but only if a certain player isn’t on the pitch.

“I think Gareth (Bale) is definitely top of the pile when it comes to taking them (free-kicks),” he said. “And rightly so.

“But if he’s not on the pitch for one reason or another, I’ll be putting my name forward.”

Wilson will be looking to continue his good form as Derby host Sheffield United in front of the Sky Sports cameras after the international break.
