The Lowdown: Williams profiled
The Latest: Villa linked with Williams
Birmingham Live reporter John Townley, who focuses mainly on Villa, shared a story on Monday morning looking at Steven Gerrard’s left-back ranks.
With Ashley Young still yet to sign a new deal in the Midlands, Townley said that the club could be interested in a move for Williams. The 21-year-old is worth just £10m and is seemingly available to leave Manchester United this summer, with Townley saying that the defender’s versatility could be of use to Gerrard.
Williams at Villa Park?
Yes, get him in!
No, look elsewhere!
The Verdict: Cheaper option
Williams has also been compared to Hickey by Football Transfers and would provide an option at right-back, another area where Villa are short, with Matty Cash the only senior option available to Gerrard last season.
He already has plenty of Premier League experience and is still in the early stages of his career, so a move to the Midlands could be a shrewd one to provide competition to Lucas Digne.
