NORTH Wales born-and-bred footballing sensation Harry Wilson is set for a return to the Premier League with Fulham.

London's oldest professional club earned promotion back to the top-flight after a 3-0 win over Preston North End at Craven Cottage on Tuesday night (April 19).

That win meant that Fulham were guaranteed to finish in the EFL Championship's top two and return to the Premier League - which they have been either pormoted to or relegated from for the last five seasons.

Wilson, who turned 25 last month, played the full 90 minutes in the club's latest win.

Born in Wrexham, the winger went on to attend Ysgol Dinas Bran school in Llangollen and was brought up in the Denbighshire town of Corwen.

From a young age, his footballing talents were clear to see and the family made national headlines when he made his international debut for Wales aged just 16 years and 207 days old v Belgium in October 2013.

That is because his grandfather, Peter Edwards, netted £125,000 as a result of having placed a bet of £50 with bookies William Hill on Harry to someday go on and play for Wales when he was just 18-months old.

Wilson last played in the Premier League for Bournemouth (on loan from Liverpool) during the 2019/20 season, scoring 7 goals in the top flight.

He signed for Fulham initially on loan before signing a four-year-deal. Now, he is set for a return to the big time with the club in the 2022/23 season.

Despite enjoying successful loan spells at Hull City, Derby County and Cardiff City previously, it is arguably at Fulham that he has truly been able to show what he is capable of this season.

Wilson, who has also earned 35 caps for Wales to date, has 10 goals and 16 assists in 38 appearances for Fulham so far.

Having started out at Liverpool as a youngster, many clubs were reported to have been after his signature before he decided to make the permanent switch to Fulham last year.

During the off-season, he can often be spotted back home in the Corwen area and regularly supports his local football club.
