Nottingham Forest has completed the signing of Neco Williams from Liverpool for £16m on a four-year deal. Williams spent the second half of the season on loan at Championship winners Fulham where he made 14 appearances, scoring twice and providing two assists in the process. He was used mainly as a deputy for Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander Arnold during his time at the club making just 33 appearances in all competitions.
“I’m really excited to join Nottingham Forest and to help this great club move forwards in the Premier League,” Neco Williams said after completing his move to Nottingham Forest. “Forest is 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 teammates and get ready for the challenge ahead.”
“Despite being only 21, Neco has established himself in Wales starting XI. He’s played in the Premier League, the Champions League, and in World Cup qualifiers in the last 12 months and he is a very talented right back,” Forest boss Steve Cooper said. “We believe that he’s got an incredibly high ceiling and that he can play a huge role for us at Nottingham Forest in our return to the Premier League. We’re delighted to have him on board.”
