Liverpool loanee Harry Wilson has returned to Melwood from Bournemouth as he has sustained an injury.
Wilson was absent from Bournemouth’s 1-0 victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on the weekend.
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has described the injury Wilson has sustained as “strange”.
As quoted by the Bournemouth Daily Echo, Howe said: “Harry’s [injury] is a strange one. He suffered a knock on his leg, a dead leg, but it’s swelled up and the swelling keeps returning. We are going to probably get him back to Liverpool this week and hope he can be back very soon.”
Howe added: “I just think it’s the right thing to do [sending Wilson back to Melwood] with him obviously being contracted to Liverpool, just to check he’s okay.”
It makes sense for Wilson to return to Melwood, despite the fact he is currently on loan at Bournemouth.
He is still a Liverpool player, which means the club clearly have an interest in his health and wellbeing.
Wilson has been solid at Bournemouth, but it is difficult to know whether he has a career at Anfield. He clearly has the talent, but the issue is that those currently in front of him are better.
One does get the sense that Liverpool are keen to retain Wilson for the future, which is why loaning him out has been the best option to go down in order to keep him happy. Wilson was on loan at Derby County last season, where he excelled.
