AFC Bournemouth have completed the loan signing of Wales international midfielder Harry Wilson.

The 22-year-old, who can operate out wide or in a central role, has joined the Cherries for the entirety of the 2019/20 campaign.

Wilson is the club’s fifth arrival of the summer, following Lloyd Kelly, Jack Stacey, Philip Billing and Arnaut Danjuma through the doors at Vitality Stadium.

The Wrexham-born star has been at Liverpool since joining their academy in the under-nines and rose through the ranks to make his first team debut in an FA Cup tie at Plymouth in January 2017.

He has also enjoyed loan spells at Crewe Alexandra, Hull City and, most recently, Derby County, where he struck 17 goals in 46 appearances as the Rams reached the Championship play-off final.

“It's great to be here, great to finally get everything sorted and I can't wait to meet all the staff and the lads,” Wilson told afcbTV.

“When Liverpool informed me it was a possibility to come here I was keen to get it sorted. I want to play Premier League football and with a great team like Bournemouth.

“With the style of play that Bournemouth are likely to play I feel that I can fit right in and help the team a lot.”

AFC Bournemouth chief executive, Neill Blake, said: “Harry is an outstanding young player who has attracted a lot of attention in this transfer window, so I am delighted that he will be an AFC Bournemouth player this season.

"We have had to work hard to secure this deal but believe Harry can add further quality to our attacking options.

"This has been a really positive window for the club and further demonstrates the board's desire to keep this club progressing."
