Swansea seals deal for Liverpool breakout youngsters

Swansea City continued its reinforcement phase under Russell Martin this summer after signing a loan deal for Liverpool center-back Rhys Williams for the duration of the 2021-22 championship season.

The deal for Williams, a Liverpool Academy graduate, can certainly be seen as a coup for the Swans after the 20-year-old came into the spotlight last season amid a severe injury spell that hit Jurgen Klopp’s squad.

Williams, an England U21 international, made 19 appearances in his debut season last season under less than ideal circumstances. He handled them expertly, although his entry into first-team football in a season of six Champions League appearances was accidental.

Born in Preston, he is the seventh signing of the summer for Swansea, alongside Joël Piroe, Liam Walsh, Jamie Paterson, Kyle Joseph, Flynn Downes and Manchester United youngster Ethan Laird.

Long-term future secured at Liverpool

Despite his loan from Anfield this season, Williams also secured a long-term contract with Liverpool before heading to Liberty Stadium.

The young center-back secured a new 5-year deal with the Reds that will keep him on the books until 2026, which bodes well for a player looking to follow in the footsteps of Academy alumni Curtis Jones and Neco Williams.

“It was also a big influence for me to see some of my friends like Neco Williams and Curtis Jones going straight to the Liverpool first team.

Then it was a great motivation for me to try to reach this level. “

A good loan period for Williams in the championship would significantly improve his chances of a long-term first-team return next season at Liverpool, with the club on Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Joe Gomez, Ibrahima Konaté and Nathaniel Phillips for the current one Campaign.
