James Wilson likely to stay at Manchester United - Wolves boss

Wilson had been linked with a loan move but will now be staying at United.

Manchester United striker James Wilson will not be joining Championship club Wolverhampton Wanderers on loan, Wolves boss Kenny Jackett has said.

Wilson, 19, had been interesting several Championship sides, with United reportedly keen to loan him out after the £36 million arrival of Anthony Martial at Old Trafford.

Wolves had asked about the England under-21 international, with Nouha Dicko having been ruled out for the season by a serious knee injury.

But Jackett told Press Association Sport he had been informed that Wilson was now needed at Old Trafford.

He said: "The information is that he's not available. They're keeping him there for the time being.

"There's been a number of clubs who have enquired about him, and at one stage they'd been saying perhaps he could go.

"The timing of it is always something, and if he was available would there be some interest from us? There has been in the past, yes."

Jackett is still chasing a striker, but said Crystal Palace forward Fraizer Campbell was not a target.

He added: "I don't know where that's come from. It's not one we've pursued or we're pursuing."
