Highly rated, and seemingly sought after, Man United youngster Wilson has signed for Albion in a loan deal that will keep him at the Amex Stadium until the end of the season.

Wilson is set to train with the club for the first time tomorrow to put the 19-year-old in contention for a place in the squad facing Birmingham on Saturday.

Following this arrival Hughton, who has always been looking for another striker and not hidden that fact, said he’s hopeful this arrival can help Brighton maintain the impressive start to the Championship season.

‘We have been keen to add a striker, and James has been our number one target for some time, so we are absolutely delighted to have completed the deal.

‘James is an exciting young striker, and we hope that this move will prove to be very good for all parties involved.

‘He is very highly thought of at Old Trafford and he has been in and around the first-team picture at Manchester United since Ryan Giggs gave him his debut the season before last.

‘There was a huge amount of competition from rival clubs to sign James on loan and it has been another great team effort to secure his signature.

‘I now hope he will help us maintain our excellent start to the season, and bring additional goals to the squad.’

The England U21 international was most recently in the Man United first-team squad on Wednesday when he was on the bench for a Champions League meeting with PSV Eindhoven.

He will now see out the season with Albion with this a cracking loan deal pulled off at the last!
