Boss Derek McInnes hopes to finalise a season-loan loan deal for the former England under-21 global over the next 24 hours.

Earlier this week, The72 reported that Wilson could be a transfer target for Sky Bet League One club Sunderland, however, it has now been revealed that the striker has agreed to move to the "Granite City" and join Aberdeen for the entire 2018/2019 campaign.

He has also had loan spells at Brighton, Derby and Sheffield United and has been capped by England at Under-16, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level.

"Since I spoke to a few people about the club, they have mentioned the big names that have come here and done well and gone back to their clubs and gone stride for stride with the lads who are already in the team", Wilson said. I am hoping to get as many minutes under my belt as I can and hopefully get goals to help the team push forward.

"I've not (spoken to Jose Mourinho) directly but obviously he doesn't see me in his plans for this year so the right move was to come on loan and Aberdeen was the right place".

McInnes told the club's website, www.afc.co.uk: "I am absolutely delighted to secure James on a season-long loan as he is a player I feel will very quickly become an important member of the squad for us".

"I'd also like to thank Manchester United for the part they played in making the loan happen".
