Norwich And Burnley Are Interested In Signing Neco Williams On Loan

Neco Williams was close to a half season loan to Southampton last season but Jurgen Klopp didn't sanction the transfer. However, it looks like he could be loaned out next season.

Ralph Hasenhuttl showed interest in Neco Williams during the last winter transfer window but Liverpool wanted to keep the Welsh international incase Trent Alexander-Arnold picked up a knock.

Williams was not used as much as he would've hoped last season, and due to that it looks like Liverpool will let him leave on a season long loan next year.

Neco played 13 games this season but a player of his quality will be looking to play regular football. 

After seeing fellow academy star Harvey Elliott flourish in the Championship, Williams will be hoping he can show the improvement Elliott did if he goes out on loan.

According to TEAMtalk, there are a number of clubs interested in the 20-year-old. Premier League side Norwich see him as a replacement for Max Aarons if they sell him and Sean Dyche's Burnley have asked to be kept informed on the fullbacks future.

There are a host of Championship clubs also interested in Williams. Stoke, Barnsley and Welsh duo Swansea and Cardiff have shown interest in him.

Williams clearly has a very high potential and Jurgen Klopp and the academy staff rate him highly enough to think he could challenge Trent, but he does need regular football and at the moment he isn't getting that with Liverpool.

Hopefully he has a good EUROs campaign with Wales and he can impress so that maybe some more clubs will join the race to sign him. Wherever he ends up, they will have an amazing player who will give everything to the team.
