The 22-year-old Welsh winger believes this is the right time to re-join the Reds in the English Premier League.

Harry Wilson came out of the Liverpool youth system in 2015, but he hasn’t played a single minute with the Reds in the English Premier League, only playing once in the FA Cup; and he has been loaned three times: to Crewe Alexandra, Hull City, and Derby County.

And now that his time at Derby is up, he has returned to Anfield, wishing to establish himself into the team.

“It’s inspiring for me. Those occasions, those atmospheres, they’re what you dream of, you know?” he was quoted by the club’s official website.

“I want that, whether it’s at Liverpool, whether it’s somewhere else. I want it on Wednesday when we go to Leeds. I want to experience those feelings and those emotions. I can’t wait.”

“It’s huge for any player,” he continued.

“These are the games you want to play in, where everything is at stake and everyone is watching. It’s what you play football for.”

“It’s a different kind of pressure to anything I’ve experienced. Playing for Wales or making my debut for Liverpool, it was excitement, a feeling of freedom even,” he said.

“This is different. You’ve worked all season to get into this position, and you know that one mistake can cost everything, or one piece of magic can make you a hero. It’s the excitement of a different kind because the stakes are so high.”
