Cardiff hat-trick ace Wilson admits make-or-break summer at Liverpool

Liverpool midfielder Harry Wilson admits he faces a crunch summer after scoring a hat-trick for loan club Cardiff City on Saturday.

The Bluebirds ran out 4-0 winners against Birmingham in their Championship clash on Saturday afternoon, with the Reds loanee hitting a treble.

Wilson later said, "Obviously it's always been my aim to get into the Liverpool team and play for the club I've been at since I was eight.

"But you know the quality Liverpool have got, the famous front three. I feel I'm good enough to be in that squad. I'd like to think I could go in there and add something different.

"I've always been confident in my ability and, playing with the players in that team, I feel it would help me with my game. But that's out of my hands.

"That's up to the manager there to make those decisions but I'm fully focused on finishing the season with Cardiff and playing at the Euros with Wales.

"I'm determined to have a good tournament there and, if it's not with Liverpool, I'm determined to get a move.

"I feel I deserve to play at the highest level I can.

"I've had the game-time here at Cardiff. I'm double figures for assists and I've got seven goals, so my numbers are OK but could be better.

"Heading into the summer, I feel I'm in great shape and it's up to me now to show to those teams that I deserve a move."
