The Football League Paper - - INSIDE - By Char­lie Tal­bot-Smith

DERBY COUNTY boss Paul Cle­ment has con­firmed his in­ter­est in bring­ing Manch­ester United striker James Wil­son to the club on loan.

De­spite a lack of strik­ers, United are open to the pos­si­bil­ity of re­leas­ing Wil­son.

And Cle­ment be­came the sec­ond man­ager, af­ter Bolton’s Neil Len­non, to pub­li­cally de­clare his in­ter­est in the 19-year-old.

“It is a pos­si­bil­ity but not a cer­tainty,” said Cle­ment. “We have shown an in­ter­est. He is a very tal­ented player and a num­ber of other clubs have shown an in­ter­est as well.

“We are wait­ing to hear back from United.”

MK Dons and Wolves are also un­der­stood to be among the host of clubs mon­i­tor­ing the sit­u­a­tion, as Wil­son has been frus­trated by a lack of op­por­tu­ni­ties in the past year.

The young­ster made his break­through un­der Ryan Giggs at the end of the 201314 sea­son, but he has played just 17 min­utes of first-team football since Fe­bru­ary.

TAL­ENTED: James Wil­son
