Fulham want to turn Neco Williams’ successful loan move from Liverpool into a permanent deal – and are confident of concluding a £12m transfer in the coming weeks.

The Welsh full back was a revelation after arriving at Craven Cottage on the final day of the January transfer window. Williams immediately displaced Kenny Tete, reprising his partnership at club and international level with Harry Wilson along the Whites’ right flank. The 21 year-old made fourteen appearances, scoring twice and adding two assists, as Marco Silva’s side surged to the Championship table before a knee injury ruled him out of the final three games of the campaign.

Williams has returned to Merseyside following the completion of Fulham’s season but the Londoners are keen to agree a permanent switch ahead of their return to the Premier League. The Wrexham-born defender is desperate to play first-team football to retain his spot in the Welsh side ahead of the World Cup this winter – and he will find his path to the senior side at Anfield blocked by Trent Alexander-Arnold.
