Harry Wilson has confirmed that he will seal a permanent move from Liverpool to Fulham at the end of the season after helping to guide the Cottagers back to the Premier League.

The 25-year-old Welshman joined Fulham on loan last summer with a view to a permanent deal and played a major role as Marco Silva's men secured automatic promotion back to the Premier League, bagging ten goals and 17 assists to date.

Speaking to Goal, Wilson has now confirmed that Fulham have taken up the option to sign him permanently and he is looking forward to settling at a club after so many years out on loan from Liverpool.

"I know now that I will be at a club that I will be at for the next few years after a permanent move," he said. "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."

His loan with Fulham was his sixth since 2015, having also had spells at Crewe, Hull, Derby, Bournemouth and Cardiff.

"I feel like I am not so young anymore," he continued. "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 settle down."
