Many European giants have already announced some big names added to their coming season's squad lists. The main highlight is the transfer of eager young Norwegian superstar Erling Haaland to premier league champions Manchester City. With the opening of this season's transfer market on June 10, mid-table clubs like Aston Villa also have a few signings, including the £350,000 signing of Starkid Rory Wilson from Rangers FC. 

Nowadays, a deal is not a deal made until and unless we see a confirmation tweet from a famous and fan-favorite Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano. People only believe any transfer deal when he writes, "Here We Go!" It is subtle, but football fans are crazy enough to make it a meme template. On June 17, 2022, he announced that Aston Villa and Rangers have agreed to a "£350k plus add-ons reaching £1m" deal to transfer 16-year-old Scottish forward Roy Wilson.

Who Are Rory Wilson's Parents?

Aston Villa newcomer Wilson is very private when sharing personal and family details with the media outlets. He has not disclosed his parents' identity; thus, his father's and mother's name is unobtainable. In addition, no information about his siblings has been traced. Thus, it is unsure whether he has a partner in crime buddy or is his parents' only child.

Besides, no clue about his familial background has been found on his Instagram. However, it is clear as a day that Wilson is fortunate to have such a supportive family. He started playing since he could remember, and without family support, it would be difficult for a kid to move ahead and make a career in sports. Many youths have to give up on their dreams because of unsupportive parents and family. 

Scottish Wonder Kid Rory Wilson's Age 

Rory Wilson came into existence on January 5, 2006, in Girvan, Scotland, United Kingdom. The Scottish youth player is 16 years old.

He started playing football at a very young age, around six or seven and joined the academy of Rangers Football Club when he was eight. Wilson uploaded an emotional goodbye post on his Instagram with a picture of young Wilson lifting his first trophy at the club.

"It is today that I would like to publicly confirm that I have left Rangers Football Club after an unforgettable eight years. I wish everyone associated with the club the best in the future."

The Scot, who drew interest from top clubs like Liverpool, Manchester City, and Tottenham Hotspur, was promoted to the Ibrox B squad at age 15 and played in the UEFA Youth League. His Scotland Under-17 coach, Brian Mclaughlin, believes he will do wonders in the coming days. Wilson joined the Scottish youth team at 12 under the manager James Grady. "I took him on the 17s campaign there, but he can go again next year. I don't think anyone realized how young that team was."

Wilson Is "One of The Best Strikers At His Age In Europe"

SunSport reported this week that Steven Gerrard's effort to recruit the Glasgow giants' super youngster was going to be sent to Fifa due to a dispute over his amateur status. The Ibrox side, though, returned to the negotiation and accepted an enhanced offer of £350,000. Villa and Gerrard feel that the kid, who netted 49 goals in all competitions last season for both club and country, is still undervalued. Wilson will reunite with his former boss Steven Gerrard in Aston Villa after eight years of service at Rangers.

The upcoming talent caught people's attention in the 2021-2022 season. Wilson scored 49 goals across all competitions and was phenomenal throughout the Rangers' domestic and European Campaigns. His contribution led his team to finish second in the league behind all-mighty Celtic and finish the runner-up in the last season's Europa League with a defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt in a penalty shoot-out.


How Tall is Rory Wilson? Height In Feet

The Scottish youngster Wilson is precisely 6 feet tall, 183 cm in centimeters and 1.83 m in meters, and his weight is approximately 60 kilograms, 132 lbs in pounds.

Besides, he has a pair of brown eyes, and his hair is dark golden. But unfortunately, his other physical stats like chest measurements and biceps are not available on the internet. Looking at his physique, the 16-year-old athlete does not have an impressive but skinny, thin teenage body. 

Next season Wilson will be playing against the big players in the premier league, which is known for its pacey and physical game. So, he should take this onto his mind and start juicing up a little unless he wants to be tossed out of the league. Many big players constantly dominating in other leagues have failed to deliver in England. Football fans and the atmosphere is on a whole different level in the premier league.
