According to The Daily Mail, James Wilson has turned down interest from Sunderland to join Aberdeen on a permanent contract following his release from Manchester United.

The report has claimed that Sunderland wanted to sign Wilson on a free transfer this summer.

However, Wilson has decided to return to Aberdeen on a two-year contract, having spent the 2018-19 campaign on loan at the Scottish Premiership club from Premier League giants United.

Missing out

Wilson could not make a huge impact during his time at United, but the 23-year-old is a very talented and promising young striker who can get better in the coming years.

The English youngster, though, did relatively well during his time at Aberdeen last season, and it does not come as a surprise that the striker has decided to extend his stay at the Scottish club instead of moving to Sunderland in League One in England.

According to WhoScored, Wilson made 12 starts and 12 substitute appearances in the Scottish Premiership for Aberdeen last season, scoring four goals in the process.
