Celtic to make winter move for Man Utd striker Wilson

Scottish champions Celtic are set to make a loan move for Manchester United youngster James Wilson during the January transfer window.


Wilson is regarded very highly by the United hierarchy but the striker has struggled for regular minutes on the pitch so far this season as the likes of Anthony Martial, Wayne Rooney and Marouane Fellaini are all ahead of him in the pecking order.

As a result, it is widely believed that Wilson will be farmed out on loan this winter and according to reports from The Scotsman, Celtic will be making a move for the 19-year-old.

It is believed that Louis van Gaal wants to keep Wilson around the Red Devils first team until later this year in case he needs to rotate his squad in all four competitions.
