Manchester United striker James Wilson is hoping to gain more playing time, but the Manchester Evening News reports that manager Louis van Gaal is prepared to ship him out on a loan deal to a Championship club.
The 19-year-old may be able to receive increased playing time with Man United, with Radamel Falcao, Robin van Persie and Javier Hernandez exiting the club in the summer.
Wilson made 13 appearances for Man United last season and scored one goal, but van Gaal is hoping to see him develop further as a player.

Van Gaal is searching for a solution in the attacking third, and the arrival of the versatile Anthony Martial could send Wilson down the pecking order.
