Manchester United let go forwards like Van Persie, Radamel Falcao and Javier Hernandez in the summer transfer window and now the strike-force seriously lacks depth.
In such a scenario, there were reports that United may also loan out versatile forward James Wilson. Fortunately, Van Gaal confirmed (ITV) that he will not be going anywhere. Wilson was utilized as a center forward, a secondary striker and also as a winger last season.
The great news for the fans is that the young England international has signed a new deal (Official Website) with Manchester United that will keep him at Old Trafford till 2019.
Here is James Wilson with manager Louis van Gaal after securing his new contract.
