Man Utd youngster Wilson subject of at least 20 loan queries

Manchester United are set to send James Wilson out on loan after receiving a number of enquiries for his services.


The 19-year-old striker was hoping to push for a first-team spot under Louis van Gaal this season but the £36million arrival of Anthony Martial is likely to force him out for the 2015/16 campaign.

It is believed that more than 20 clubs asked about Wilson last week with Derby County believed to be the frontrunners to land his signature.

Wilson, who has hardly featured for the Red Devils since February, scored his debut goal for the England U21s in a friendly win over USA's U23s on Thursday.
