Wilson has shone on-loan with the Cherries this season.
He told Sky Sports: "He was happy with how the loan [at Derby] had gone, he said I had a great season.
"Throughout last season, I was getting texts off him if one of our games was on tele that he had watched. It was good to know that when you go out on loan, you're not just forgotten about, which may happen at some teams.
"We have a loan guy who you keep in regular contact with, so when you're getting regular messages off the manager, it always gives you that boost.
"Of course I wanted to play in the Liverpool first team this year, but if that wasn't the case, I wanted to be playing in the Premier League. I was delighted when I heard Bournemouth wanted to take me and I've started off well."
