as reported by the birmingham mail,
Aston Villa are among the clubs who have been linked with Harry Wilson – but Liverpool’s loan policy could make them think twice about making a move for the winger.
Villa are reportedly one of 12 sides to have enquired about signing the youngster for the upcoming season, as well as several of their Championship rivals including Leeds United.
But Liverpool are set to continue their stringent policy of fining clubs who do not play their loan players enough – and it could put off Wilson’s potential suitors.
The Reds are among the clubs who impose controversial cash punishments to sides who do not utilise their loan talents enough – with clauses inserted in deals outlining a minimum number of games the player must be involved in.
If that number is not met then clubs have to pay a penalty fee.
Bristol City fell foul of that system last season for playing Liverpool loanee Ryan Kent in only 10 matches after he had signed for the club in January.
They were subsequently hit with a £500,000 fine, reports Bristol Live.
Wilson, 21, impressed in a temporary stint at Hull City in the second half of last season – scoring seven goals in 13 games to lift them away from the threat of relegation.
It is said that Liverpool will hold talks with interested parties in the coming weeks to discuss where and how often he would likely be played and potential financial packages.
