The former Liverpool midfielder made the comments following Derby’s 2-1 win against Swansea City at the Pride Park Stadium in the Championship this past Saturday afternoon.
Wilson, who joined Derby on a season-long loan deal from Liverpool in the summer transfer window, scored both the goals for the Rams.
The 21-year-old winger has been superb for Frank Lampard’s side so far this season and has established himself as a key figure for the Rams.
According to WhoScored, the youngster - who earns £4,000 per week as salary, according to Spotrac.com - has made 13 starts and two substitute appearances in the Championship for Derby so far this season, scoring seven goals and providing one assist in the process.
Thompson, who started his professional club football career at Liverpool before going on to play for Coventry City and Wigan Athletic among other clubs, has suggested on Twitter that he would recall Wilson from his loan at Derby in January if the option was there.
