We continue our review of some of the most significant players in Scottish football, with a review of Aberdeen loanee James Wilson’s 2018/19 season.
Aberdeen attacker James Wilson came to the club with a decent pedigree. He arrived from Manchester United, but had been unable to make the breakthrough at Old Trafford.
He became a regular for the Dons, turning in an indifferent season, scoring four goals in 33 games. You would probably expect a striker to score more goals.
Dons reportedly want to bring player back
However, it has been reported that Aberdeen want to bring the player back to the club on a permanent basis.
Interestingly, the player was recently released by Manchester United, so he is available on a free transfer.
Perhaps if the player was played on the wing he could achieve more success at the Dons. He did play there on occasion for Aberdeen last season. Derek McInnes must have a plan for player if he wants to bring him back to the club.
Move could come down to wages
Any permanent move to Aberdeen could come down to wages. If the Dons could afford Wilson they seem to want to bring him back to the club, if reports are to be believed.
As has been said though, you might not get the best out of the player as a natural striker. His game could be more suited to either on the wing or as a second striker.
Only time will tell if Wilson makes a permanent return to Pittodrie.
