PROLIFIC striker Kyle Wilson has rejoined FC United on an initial one-month loan deal.

Wilson scored 24 goals in 32 appearances for the Rebels last season before moving back in to league football with Macclesfield over the summer.

But the 24-year-old has had limited first-team opportunities Moss Rose, and FC boss Karl Marginson was only too happy to bring him back to Gigg Lane.

“I’m delighted because Kyle is a quality player,” said Marginson.

“It’s selfish of me to say that because he’s got the talent to play in the league and I wish it had worked out for him at Macclesfield.

“But hopefully he can do well for us here and then move up again.”

The deal, which could be extended until the end of the season, was struck quickly and Wilson could be in line to make his second debut for the club against Frickley on Wednesday night.

“I’ve been monitoring the situation since day one and Kyle’s not been featuring as much as he’d like there,” said Marginson.

“I rang Keith Alexander up yesterday to ask about him, and he told me they’d be willing to let him go out on loan.

“It’s a boost for us, and Kyle is fully fit and looked sharp in training last night so he’s definitely in contention for the Frickley game.”

Meanwhile, full-back Simon Garner has left the club, and midfielder Tunji Moses has decided to take a break from football due to personal reasons.
