Brighton and Hove Albion have completed the loan signing of Manchester United forward James Wilson, according to the Mail Online.
The Red Devils have allowed the nineteen year old to move to the Championship side on a temporary basis, despite failing to score in four of their last seven games and with the deal leaving Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial and the only recognised strikers in Louis Van Gaal’s squad.
Wilson has made twenty appearances for his parent club in all competitions since turning professional, scoring four times while internationally, he netted on his debut appearance for England’s U21s back in September.
Brighton, who currently sit second in the division by virtue of goal difference, were one of a number of sides in England’s second tier interested in signing the forward, who turns twenty on Tuesday.
He could make his Seagulls debut when they host Birmingham City on Saturday afternoon, and the home win can be backed at 3/4.
