One of the biggest deals of in the Championship saw Cardiff City seal a late swoop for Harry Wilson from Liverpool.
The Welsh international had been expected to secure a move to the Premier League but a failure to do so meant he was available for second tier clubs before the domestic deadline.
And, the Bluebirds won the race for Wilson, with his arrival generating a lot of excitement among the support. However, the 23-year-old has had a mixed start to life in the Welsh capital.
He got off to a fine start, making Neil Harris’ XI as they beat Preston and he backed that up with by grabbing the equaliser against former club Bournemouth just a few days later.
Wilson then played the full game in a 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough but he suffered a hip injury in training after that, meaning he was absent for the midweek draw at Derby County.
Thankfully for Cardiff, the issue wasn’t a serious one and the boss explained at his press conference ahead of the weekend trip to QPR that he is hopeful Wilson will be able to feature.
That would be a major boost for the Championship side as they have endured a mixed start to the campaign. Two wins and four draws from their opening eight games has left the team languishing in mid-table.
Given their squad, promotion will be the aim and Wilson will still be expected to play a big role as he looks to get a good run in the team to show he can shine at this level once again.
