Manchester United striker James Wilson says a loan move could be completed in the January transfer window.
The 21-year-old was the subject of intense interest in the summer with numerous clubs linked with the forward.
Ultimately however he remained at Old Trafford in order to regain full fitness.
He is yet to turn out for the senior side, but has made a handful of appearances for the Under-23s.
Wilson says going out on loan when the January transfer window opens is a real possibility in order to step up his recuperation.
‘I don’t see why not. Obviously, the summer transfer window has gone and there was a lot of interest,’ he told MUTV. ‘But the staff all came to an agreement that I would stay until January to build on what I’ve already worked for.
‘So I think it’s certainly a possibility. We’ll just have to talk and have a few conversations with the manager and certain people around here. I’m not ruling it out but we’ll come to an agreement over what needs to be done.’
Wilson, who’s scored four goals in 20 appearances for Manchester United, says he feels he’s coped with his injury problems as well as he can.
‘The recovery is a process and I think I’ve dealt with it quite well mentally,’ he said. ‘If you’re not training for 90 minutes, which you can’t always do, I think it’s really hard to get that unique fitness you need for a full game. It’s just a matter of keeping playing games and staying as fit as I can.
‘I’ve listened to the advice of everyone around me and they have been brilliant throughout my process. I can’t really describe it but it’s like you really want to get out there. Yet you get little setbacks and how you deal with them is really important. The help from the people around the place is a massive part of that and they have definitely done brilliantly for me.’
