Manchester United set to enter agreement over the transfer of striker

Old Trafford

Manchester United on the verge of agreeing the loan departure of striker James Wilson to Celtic, according to reports from the Scotsman

It is no secret that James Wilson is considered one of the brightest young prospects to have emerged from the Manchester United youth ranks in recent times and the club management are really optimistic regarding the teenager potentially becoming a regular for the first team.

Wilson has struggled for regular minutes on the pitch this season

Wilson has already managed a handful of appearances over the course of the last 18 months but with the likes of Anthony Martial, Wayne Rooney and Marouane Fellaini ahead of him in the pecking order, the young striker has featured sparingly during the current campaign.

There was a lot of speculation surrounding Wilson making a move away from United on loan during the summer but such a move surprisingly did not come into fruition.

With Wilson having struggled for regular minutes on the pitch, he is believed to have recently persuaded United to allow him to leave on loan and now according to reports from the Scotsman, Celtic are on the verge of securing the services of the 19-year old.

Celtic are in the market to sign a new striker after their pursuit of Carlton Cole failed to come into fruition and consequently, manager Ronny Deila has focused his attention to signing Wilson as an alternative.

It has been claimed that Celtic have made a breakthrough in their hopes of signing Wilson and are confident of securing the services of the striker on loan during the January transfer window.
