Huddersfield in Talks With USA International Midfielder After Contract Expires With Reading
USA international Danny Williams is in talks over a proposed move to Huddersfield.
According to Sky Sports, the talks are at an advanced stage and the deal could be completed as early as next week. The midfielder is now a free agent after his contract with Reading ran out last week.
Since his arrival from Hoffenheim in 2013, Williams has made 135 appearances for the Royals. He played his last game for the club in the defeat to Huddersfield in the play-off final.
The 28-year-old was not prolific during his time at Reading with only 13 goals, however, his performances more than displayed his quality and were one of the main reason why Reading were able to reach the play-off final last season.
Reading offered him a new deal, but he is set to take the opportunity to move to the Premier League.
The Terriers are not the only club interested, with Williams attracting a whole host of Premier League interest.
Manager David Wagner was a keen admirer when he was assistant manager to Jurgen Klopp at Dortmund and looks to have finally got his man. He sees Williams as a player who can add quality to his squad following promotion to the Premier League.
Huddersfield have already signed midfielder Aaron Mooy, goalkeeper Jonas Lossl and striker Laurent Depoitre this summer.
They have also agreed on a fee for Tom Ince and are looking at bringing Kasey Parmer back to the club. With Premier League survival at stake, Wagner looks to have acted quickly and decisively in the summer market to give Huddersfield the best chance of staying up.
