Transfer news LIVE: Chelsea’s Willian to Barcelona, Liverpool latest, Man Utd update

Lampard makes Liverpool admission 

Derby manager Frank Lampard says he has had no contact from Liverpool over Harry Wilson.

The 21-year-old winger has enjoyed great success at Pride Park, scoring 10 goals and adding two assists in 24 appearances.

The Wales international’s form saw some suggestions that Jurgen Klopp could recall him to his parent club this month due to a clause in the deal. 

But Lampard expects the forward – who is up for the Championship’s December Player of the Month award – to see out the season with his playoff-chasing outfit.

“I have heard nothing from Liverpool, which is good news,” he said of Wilson. “No news is good news.

“I hope he stays with us because I think it (the loan) has been good for all parties, so far. In terms of his individual performance, 10 goals is a great return.

“His spectacular goals have been great on the eye but my biggest pleasure is seeing his performances in the past month.

“His all-round game, the energy, the personality to receive the ball and be pivotal in the game has gone up a notch, and I think there are more notches to go.

“That is credit to Harry and hopefully he can continue that progress in the second half of the season.”
