The 21-year-old is with Frank Lampard’s Championship side for the season and has already won plaudits for some of his performances in the second-tier.
However, he really caught the eye last month by scoring an absolutely brilliant set-piece against the Red Devils at Old Trafford, which helped the Rams to a famous victory after a 2-2 draw and a penalty shoot-out.

Speaking via the Express, Wales international Wilson revealed Klopp’s message was short and sweet, but definitely showed the German is keeping tabs on the impressive youngster.
He said: “Jurgen Klopp messaged me after the United game. He just said: ‘fantastic free-kick, really great football’.
“It’s great to hear from the manager whose team you want to be in in the future.
“I have been practising a bit and if I can hit one half as good as the other night I will be happy. I think the Liverpool fans enjoyed it.”
What do you think of Wilson’s prospects of becoming a first-team Liverpool player next season? Is he good enough to challenge some of the top stars currently plying their trade at Anfield?
