Harry Wilson has had a really positive season on loan at Bournemouth. The winger has been one of the few bright spots in a dysfunctional side, replacing David Brooks without issue.

Of course, it’s just a loan. Next season, he’ll either be back at Anfield full time, sold, or on loan again. It’s the last one that feels least likely. Wilson knows he has a serious choice to make as to where his future is.

“I feel I’ve got that decision to make in the summer”, Wilson told BT Sport, as reported by the Mirror.

”This [season] has been really positive as well. I’m finally in the Premier League which I’ve worked towards.

“In the summer I’ll be concentrating on Wales, but once that’s done with I feel I may have a decision to make.

“I’ve always had belief in myself. My first loan spell I was 18. I went to Crewe, and I felt I’d scored all these goals for Liverpool’s youth teams and I’d go to League One and it would be the same.

“I quickly found out that it wasn’t. It took me to come back, captain the U23 side for a year and a half to really get my confidence back.”

“I was training with the first team day in, day out, but never getting in the squad. Then I went on loan to Hull and I felt my career really started.

“It was a bit later than I’d expected, but I’m 22 and I’ve got over 100 appearances under my belt in men’s football and I’m in the Premier League where I’ve always wanted to be.”

Look, Wilson needs to play football every week. He knows he shouldn’t spend next season sitting on the bench coming on for Mohamed Salah in the last 20 minutes. It’s not what his career needs. For that reason it feels like his Liverpool career will come to an end sooner rather than later.
