HUGHTON MARVELS AT JAMES ADDITION
BRIGHTON boss Chris Hughton admitted this week’s capture of James Wilson is down to months of hard work.
Though Manchester United have been struggling for goals this season, they have allowed the England U21 international to move to the south coast on loan for the remainder of the season – much to the bemusement of the Old Trafford faithful.
But Hughton is not complaining.
“We have been keen to add a striker and James has been our number one target for some time, so we are absolutely delighted,” he said.
“James is an exciting young striker and we hope that this move will prove very good for all parties involved.
“He is very highly thought of at Old Trafford and he has been in and around the firstteam picture since Ryan Giggs gave him his debut the season before last.
“There was a huge amount of competition from rival clubs to sign James on loan and it has been another great team effort to secure his signature.”
Hughton also swooped to sign 24-year-old midfielder Rajiv van La Parra from Wolves until January 2.
