Liverpool’s Wilson joins Cardiff on loan, Elliott joins Blackburn

For the remainder of the season, Cardiff City have signed Liverpool outcast Harry Wilson on loan, while Harvey Elliott has joined Blackburn Rovers.

Ahead of the transfer deadline on Friday, Wales winger Wilson was linked with Cardiff’s fierce rivals Swansea City, his former club Derby County, and Nottingham Forest.

Cardiff, however, after he missed out on a move to a Premier League side, won the fight to secure the 23-year-old.
As the Cherries were relegated to the Championship, Wilson spent last season on loan with Bournemouth, scoring seven goals in 31 top-flight games.

He made a first senior start in the EFL Cup this month for Liverpool against Arsenal, but was considered to be surplus to Anfield requirements and is on the move again, having also previously spent temporary spells in the second tier with Hull City and Derby.

Teenage forward Elliott is another player who has also made a loan move away from the Premier League champions.

Since arriving from Fulham, the 17-year-old England youth international has featured nine times for Jurgen Klopp ‘s side, but will now spend the remainder of the 2020-21 season with Blackburn.
