Neco Williams joins Nottingham Forest

Neco Williams bids farewell to Liverpool after 15 years at the club. The 21-year-old right-back joined the Academy at the age of six and worked his way up to the first team two years ago.

Unfortunately for Neco, the Reds already have one of the world’s best right-backs in Trent Alexander-Arnold and first team opportunities were few and far between.

Williams spent the second half of last season on loan with Fulham, making 14 league appearances, scoring twice and assisting two goals to help the west London team’s bid for promotion back to the Premier League.

The Welsh international now joins another newly-promoted club in Nottigham Forest for an estimated £17m including add-ons.

“I’m really excited to join Nottingham Forest and to help this great club move forwards in the Premier League,” said Williams.

“Forest are a club with incredible history and the City Ground is a very special venue that I can’t wait to experience in full voice in the coming weeks.

“Having spoken to the head coach, there’s a huge amount of ambition being shown at the club and I can’t wait to join up with my new team-mates and get ready for the challenge ahead.”
