Liverpool’s injury woes and what looks like a poor finish to an all around poor season for the Reds has understandably taken attention away from the Liverpool players that are currently outside of Anfield on loan with other clubs. The Reds currently have 13 players out on loan including Marko Grujic, Harvey Elliot, Taiwo Awoniyi and Harry Wilson. The four players mentioned are all currently enjoying good spells at their loan clubs including Wilson.

The future of many of Liverpool’s loanees is up in the air including Harry Wilson. This is the Wales internationals fifth season in a row out on loan since signing for Liverpool and despite each spell being mainly successful, Wilson has struggled to return to Anfield and break into the first team squad. It now seems that the 24 year-old is looking to move on permanently.

In a recent interview with Welsh football show Sgorio, Wilson admitted it may be time to move on from Anfield when asked about a permanent move elsewhere. 

“Yeah, maybe. I feel my senior career has been elsewhere so far. I’m 150-200 appearances deep now and only a couple have been at Liverpool.”

Wilson, who currently plays with Cardiff City has had an impressive spell scoring five goals in 35 appearances. Alongside this, the winger has received regular call ups for the Wales national team and featured in some of their biggest qualifying games to date. 

He has made 34 appearances for his country, scoring five goals. Despite uncertainty over his future, Wilson is only concentrating on the games ahead of him for Cardiff as well as the upcoming Euros with Wales.

“My focus is on finishing the season strong here at Cardiff and then going to the Euros with Wales and doing well there. Whatever happens off the back of that will happen. I think it would be silly of me to look beyond that with such an important summer coming up at the international level."

To his credit, Harry Wilson has kept his head down and remained professional rather than being overly critical of Liverpool, although his frustrations would be understandable. There will undoubtedly be outgoings from Anfield this season and it is likely Wilson will be one of them. What could be Liverpool’s loss would be another team's gain as the Welshman still has plenty to offer and could excel in another side permanently.
