FORMER Manchester United prospect James Wilson will quit Aberdeen today to sign for Salford City.

The striker agreed a two-year deal when he joined the Dons on a permanent basis in the summer following an initial loan period.

However, 24-year-old Wilson has struggled to settle in at Pittodrie and a move to the English League Two outfit, which is backed by the Old Trafford club’s Class of 92, including Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Gary and Phil Neville and Nicky Butt, appears to be the ideal solution, according to a report in the Daily Record.

Wilson will take the same route as Adam Rooney who quit the north east men two years ago.

The forward made just 16 appearances for Derek McInnes’ side, but most of them have been from the substitutes’ bench.

The Dons boss has also decided to cut Zak Vyner’s loan deal short because of injury.

The defender is still recovering from a shoulder problem and has returned to Bristol City.

Vyner made 18 appearances for the Dons.
