Liverpool are unlikely to recall Harry Wilson from his loan spell with Derby in January, reports claim.
The Wales winger, 21, has been in sensational form for the Rams, scoring eight goals since joining the Championship club on a season-long loan in July.
He is playing a huge role in the Rams’ promotion push with only goal difference keeping them out of the top six.
Earlier this week, Derby boss Frank Lampard revealed Liverpool have an option to bring Wilson back to Anfield in January.
He said: “There is an element where Liverpool can call him back in early January. That is a conversation between the clubs.
“Liverpool run a fantastic department in terms of looking after their loans players. We have a lot of chat with them. We will just have to see how that goes.
“At the minute he’s our player, and of course we want him to stay our player for the course of the season because he is contributing.
“Since Harry came, there has been constant dialogue with myself, Liverpool and Harry. It is a very open conversation.

“For me, he is here to progress, and he is progressing well. I hope he stays with us because I think we can work well for each other.”
However, the Liverpool Echo report that Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is unlikely to recall Wilson.
The German is happy with the progress Wilson is making, and barring a Liverpool injury crisis, he is set to stay at Pride Park until May.
