Harry Wilson has joined Fulham from Liverpool on a five-year deal for a fee of £12m.

Wilson, 24, enjoyed successive season-long loans at Derby and Bournemouth before spending the 2020/21 campaign at Cardiff City where he scored seven times and made 12 assists in 37 Championship appearances for the Bluebirds.

He was recently involved in Wales' Euro 2020 campaign and featured in the 2-0 win over Turkey and defeats to Italy and Denmark as Rob Page's side reached the last 16.

Wilson is a product of Liverpool's academy and departs the Merseyside club after 15 years there, but the Welshman struggled for first-team appearances during his time at Anfield.

Fulham FC statement by Geoff Pruce
The Club is delighted to announce the signing of Harry Wilson.

Wilson signs from Liverpool on a deal that could see the player remain at Craven Cottage until the summer of 2026.

24-year-old Wilson, a left-footed attacking midfielder, primarily operates on the right wing but has also featured on the opposite flank, as well as centrally.

Born in Wales, he had been with Liverpool for 15 years, with a first taste of senior domestic football coming on loan with League One Crewe Alexandra as an 18-year-old during the 2015/16 season.

A Liverpool debut came the following season, before he exploded onto the scene when he was sent on loan to Hull City for the second half of 2017/18, scoring seven goals in just 11 Championship starts.

His final goals for the Tigers were a brace during a thrilling 5-5 draw at Ashton Gate, in which Joe Bryan and Bobby De Cordova-Reid were also on target for Bristol City.

Wilson was back on loan in the Championship the following season, this time for the duration of the campaign, with Derby County.

It was a fantastic year for both player and club, though they fell just short in the Play-Off Final where they were beaten by Aston Villa, who bounced back from their Wembley defeat by Fulham 12 months earlier.

Wilson scored a phenomenal 18 goals from midfield for the Rams, including a vital penalty in their memorable second leg victory over Leeds United in the Play-Off Semi-Finals.

Fans may also recall a stunning free-kick he netted against Manchester United in a Carabao Cup victory at Old Trafford.

Derby might not have been playing Premier League football the following season, but Wilson was.

His goalscoring exploits prompted AFC Bournemouth to move for his services, with Wilson featuring in 31 of their 38 top-flight fixtures and returning an impressive haul of seven goals.

He matched that tally while back in his homeland on loan with Cardiff City last term, while also registering a career best 12 assists during his season in the Welsh capital.

Wilson actually played for the Wales senior team before any of his club sides, with Chris Coleman giving him a debut in their 1-1 World Cup Qualifier against Belgium in October 2013.

At the age of 16 years and 207 days, it made Wilson the youngest player to ever represent Wales, taking a record that was previously held by Gareth Bale.

It would be several years before he represented his country again, but he marked his first start with a wonderful goal in a victory over China.

Wilson was named in the Wales squad for this summer’s European Championship, featuring in three of their four matches, meaning he now has 29 caps for his country.

Speaking to FFCtv after signing, Wilson said: “I’m delighted to sign for Fulham. From my first chat with the Gaffer on the phone, I loved what he was saying and felt that he understood me as a player, and that played a massive role in me coming here.

“The ambition of the Club to get back into the Premier League appealed to me as that’s where we all want to be. I’m hoping I can come here, have a good season and help get the Club back into the Premier League.”

Tony Khan added: “I’m delighted to welcome Harry Wilson to Fulham Football Club.

“Harry’s been a very productive player in his young career and his arrival greatly strengthens our attack, as Harry has gained valuable experience in the Championship.

“He helped lead Derby to the Play-Off Final at Wembley in 2019, and he’s an important goalscoring threat who also has provided good service to his teammates and is highly regarded for his contributions on set pieces.
