A surfeit of potential suitors are plotting summer moves for Fulham winger George Williams, according to a report on Here Is The City this afternoon. Burton Albion, Charlton Athletic, Portsmouth and Plymouth Argyle are believed to among the leading contenders to sign the Welsh international winger.
HITC cites sources close to Fulham as suggesting that Williams, who enjoyed a promising initial run in the Fulham first team under Kit Symons back in 2014, may move on loan again next season as, despite being highly rated by the Motspur Park coaching staff, he has fallen quite a way down Slavisa Jokanovic’s pecking order as the Serbian head coach plans the club’s play-off bid. The 21 year-old will hope that any further loan will be more successful than this season’s experience at one of his former clubs – with his deal at MK Dons terminated early due to a lack of first team football.
Williams, who has been in startling form for Fulham’s under 23s since returning to Craven Cottage in January, might well consider a permanent exit from west London as he begins the final year of his contract with the Championship club. The left winger, who has won seven caps for Wales, has made 15 league appearances for the Whites and started very impressively in Fulham colours when he was promoted to the first team squad once Kit Symons had taken over from Felix Magath. Williams has found his first-team opportunities limited since Jokanovic began to revamp the squad last January and will likely conclude that he will need to move on soon if he wishes to prolong a burgeoning international career that has already seen him be part of the Welsh Euro 2016 squad.
