Harry Wilson has shed some light on his request to leave Liverpool in the summer of 2021, which saw him end up at Championship outfit Fulham.
The right winger came through Liverpool’s academy before going out on several loan spells. He joined the likes of Hull, Derby, Bournemouth and Cardiff to gain senior experience.
That cycle came to an end in July as Fulham agreed to pay Liverpool £12million for Wilson’s signature. Reports claimed they had paid the money straight away, although The Sun suggest it is actually a loan with the obligation to buy.

“That was what I wanted. I wanted somewhere to settle down off the pitch so I can enjoy it on the pitch.
“My first season here has been great, the club has been great with me, I settled in well with my teammates and set me up for a fantastic year.
“I have managed to get double figures for goals and assists, topping it off tonight by getting into the team of the year.
“This year has been my most enjoyable season. I have that stability now and have a great year behind me.”
Wilson continued: “I feel like I am not so young anymore. When you are younger, loans are great, they give you experience.
“My first couple really helped me but you get to a point where you want to…
