Leicester City now look likely to miss out on a deal to sign Harry Wilson on loan from Liverpool next season.

Goal reports that talks over a deal have taken place, with the Reds looking to send the player out on loan to a Premier League club.

However, unfortunately for the Foxes, it is claimed that the Reds have some concerns about sending their promising youngster to work with Brendan Rodgers.

While the former Liverpool boss has always maintained a reputation for developing younger players, concerns were raised during his time at Celtic.

The Reds cite Chelsea’s Charly Musonda, who had joined the Hoops on an 18-month loan deal in an attempt to secure regular first-team football.

Sent to Scotland, with Rodgers a key part in Chelsea’s decision making, the Belgian returned just months later after failing to break into his plans.

Wilson has been impressing in the Championship this season with Derby and may have his eyes on a first-team spot at Anfield over the summer.
