Manchester United striker James Wilson has suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury during his loan spell at Championship club Derby County.

The 20-year-old returned to Old Trafford for tests after being injured while training with the Rams on Monday.

Wilson will undergo surgery and is set for a lengthy spell out of action.

"Only last week I was saying how much I was looking forward to working with him because he's an exciting young talent," said Derby manager Steve McClaren.

"I know that he will bounce back from this disappointment. As well as being a very good player he is also a strong and determined character."

Wilson failed to score in four league appearances for Derby but did find the net in an EFL Trophy tie against Doncaster.
