Cardiff City have agreed a deal with Liverpool for Harry Wilson but Bristol City and Swansea City could still make a late move for the winger.
The 23-year-old is a man in-demand after he failed to secure a move away in the international transfer window, meaning his only realistic option for game time will be by moving to the Championship and a recent report stated that four clubs in the second tier are tracking Wilson.
However, an issue that had arisen for those interested parties was the ‘substantial’ loan fee that the Premier League champions were demanding for the Welsh international.
That doesn’t appear to be a problem for the Bluebirds though, with Football Insider claiming tonight that they have reached an agreement with Liverpool for the player to join on loan.
Whilst this update indicates that Neil Harris’ men are in the driving seat for the former Derby County loanee, it does state that this could force Cardiff’s bitter rivals Swansea and Bristol City into action and they may look to match the offer.
Wilson’s future must be decided by the 5pm deadline tomorrow.
This would be great news for Cardiff City as they are lacking a spark in the final third that Wilson would undoubtedly provide.
He has proven himself at this level in the past and he essentially guarantees goals and assists, so even if Liverpool want a decent loan fee, it would be worth it if Wilson fires Cardiff to promotion.
Now, it’s down to Swansea or any other interested clubs to meet the demands Liverpool have set or it appears Wilson will be off to the Welsh capital.
