Aberdeen boss McInnes excited signing Man Utd striker Wilson

Aberdeen have signed Manchester United striker James Wilson on a season-long loan, the Scottish Premiership club have announced.

Wilson burst into the first-team with two goals on his debut against Hull City in 2014 after being promoted by caretaker manager Ryan Giggs following David Moyes' dismissal. Aberdeen sold their top scorer to Salford City and Wilson will now help them fill the void.

His upward progression as a rival to Marcus Rashford was halted by an anterior cruciate ligament injury while on loan at Derby, with the striker scoring once in nine appearances during a temporary switch to Sheffield United last season. "He has the pace, ability and technique and no doubt he will have the real confidence and personality to become a big player for us".

That and the fact the Englishman's contract ends next summer means the pressure is really on to deliver during his loan spell at Pittodrie. I am out of my comfort zone here but I see that as a good thing.

James Maddison had a loan spell at Aberdeen from Norwich City before establishing himself in the Canaries' first team and subsequently sealing a £20m move to Leicester City.
