Wales international Harry Wilson has left Liverpool permanently for £12m after agreeing a five-year contract with Fulham. The 24-year-old did not make a single Premier League appearance for the Reds, and found himself out on loan more regularly than being at Anfield.

Michael Edwards may have delivered another transfer masterstroke in the deal to sell Harry Wilson to Fulham.

Welsh winger Wilson completed a permanent move to Championship side Fulham last week for a £12million fee.

The 24-year-old had failed to break into Jurgen Klopp’s first team plans, spending the last four seasons out on loan.

And Wilson will be aiming for promotion back to the Premier League with Fulham this season after signing a five-year contract at Craven Cottage.

Liverpool have done well to get £12m for a fringe player with just one season of Premier League football.

But sporting director Edwards, who deals with the club’s transfer business, may have secured even more funds for the club in the deal.

As he has done with so many deals in the past, Edwards ensured a sell-on clause was included in the deal with Fulham, meaning the Reds will pocket 15 per cent of the fee the Cottagers get if they decide to sell Wilson on at some stage.

Edwards has done the same for two other Liverpool sales this summer, including Marko Grujic’s move to FC Porto and Taiwo Awoniyi departure to German side Union Berlin.

Both of those deals will see the Reds pick up 10 per cent of the fee for the pair.

Liverpool have recuperated £29million for the trio who were always unlikely to feature for Klopp this season.

That is just £7m short of the fee they paid RB Leipzig for Ibrahima Konate, who is set to become Virgil van Dijk’s regular playing partner at centre-back.

Wilson opened up on his view on the move shortly after arriving at Fulham.

Speaking to FFCtv, he said: “I’m delighted to sign for Fulham. From my first chat with the gaffer on the phone, I loved what he was saying and felt that he understood me as a player, and that played a massive role in me coming here.

“The ambition of the club to get back into the Premier League appealed to me as that’s where we all want to be.

“I’m hoping I can come here, have a good season and help get the club back into the Premier League.”
