The national player from Wales was surprisingly absent in the 1-1 draw of Cardiff against Derby County on Wednesday evening in Pride Park.
On loan, the young Liverpool native Harry Wilson was able to return to Cardiff City’s starting lineup for Saturday’s duel with Queens Park Rangers.
The Wales international was surprisingly absent in Cardiff’s 1-1 draw with Pride Park Derby on Wednesday night.
However, Harris has now given another update on Wilson’s fitness and hopes the midfielder will be back in action this weekend.
City boss Neil Harris revealed after the game that the Reds had picked up on a problem in training the day before the trip to the East Midlands.
“Losing him is a hard blow, because he started out like a burning house. So it won’t take long.”
“Right at the end of training yesterday [Tuesday], only one hip flexor, his left groin, was cramping up,” Harris told Wales Online.
“We hope that this is not a long period of time, but a really short turnaround. I’m not sure if we’ll see him this weekend, we’ll have to see when we’re back tomorrow and Friday.
The Reds wanted to unload the Welsh Foreign Secretary on a permanent deal in the summer, but saw that Burnley broke off the negotiations before the end of the European broadcast period, after an offer of £12 million plus £3 million as an additional offer for Wilson was rejected.
Wilson signed for Cardiff on the last day of the domestic transfer window and he has already proved to be a key attacker for the Bluebirds as they seek to set a promotion challenge.
Liverpool had initially sought around £20 million for Wilson, but the 23-year-old remained on the books of the Anfield club after neither side met their rating.
