James Wilson has been loaned out for a fourth season in a row since making his debut for Manchester United in 2014.
Manchester United striker James Wilson has completed a loan move to Scottish outfit Aberdeen. The 21 year old was not in Manchester United’s plans for this season but is considered as an important prospect for the future.
James Wilson made his debut as an eighteen year old with Manchester United against Hull City. In his first game for the Red Devils, he managed to grab a brace in an eventual 3-1 win for them. James Wilson did travel to the United States with the Reds but does not seem to have a future with the first team this season.
Wishing James Wilson the best of luck for his loan spell with Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen.

He was part of United’s Under 23 side and made his final appearance for the youth squad on Friday night. The 22 year old was on the radars of several clubs but United believed that Aberdeen would be the right place for James Wilson to develop, more so, after the departure of the Scotland based team’s star striker Adam Rooney.
James Wilson has already had three loan moves prior to the one in north United Kingdom, at Brighton & Hove Albion, Derby County and Sheffield United. Unfortunately, the loan at Derby County did not add much value due to a serious knee injury to the forward.
Aberdeen’s manager Derek McInnes was elated at the arrival of James Wilson. “He is a player I feel will very quickly become an important member of the squad,” McInnes told Dons’ website.
“He is a real quality player who I think will suit the way we play. Having spoken to him, I think he sees this move as a real opportunity for him. There were other clubs interested in taking James, but he feels this is the right place for him to continue his development.”
Manchester United are already off and running in the 2018/19 Premier League win a narrow 2-1 victory over Leicester City. They visit the Amex Stadium next to play Brighton & Hove Albion.
