“First and foremost, I’d like to thank Manchester City for allowing such a promising young player to join us,” said Wilson. “They trust us with his development.
“What we’ve got is a highly-promising young lad who wants to start his league football off. He’s had plenty of opportunities to go to clubs but he’s decided we are the right one for him. We’re very privileged in that respect.
“Now we have to try and develop him by giving him games at first-team level. What he has got is great pace and an eye for goal. He can be a very exciting acquisition for us.”
