Brandon Williams completes loan switch to Norwich City

Norwich City have confirmed the loan signing of Manchester United full-back Brandon Williams.

The 20-year-old, who can play on either flank, completed his season long loan move over the weekend and the deal has finally been announced.

Readers of Stretty News were given a heads up about the loan move last week when we heard Norwich was bound to be his home for the next year.

Hopefully Williams goes there and plays regular first-team football because that is the aim for this loan spell, and ultimately for him to return a better player next summer.

Williams is available for the Canaries’ League Cup second round home tie against Bournemouth on Tuesday, subject to clearance.

“It feels very different. It’s the first time I’ve ever played for a different club before but I’m just really excited to get started, meet everybody and get my season going,” Williams said, speaking to the club’s official site.

“It’s a massive club and I like the way they play. I’ve watched them over the years and seen how they play.

“The club like to play out from the back and play football. That really inspired me to come here, and I think that the head coach can really improve me as a player.

“Everyone has been so welcoming. I’ve really enjoyed my time here already and I can’t wait to meet everybody. I’ve just got a feeling it’ll be a good year.”

Williams will wear the number 21 shirt while playing for Norwich this season and the biggest positive of all is that he’ll be playing in the Premier League.

Norwich City manager Daniel Farke said: “We’re really happy that we have been able to bring Brandon in.

“This is an exciting deal for all parties, and we thank Manchester United for allowing us the opportunity to work with Brandon.

“Brandon is a young player full of potential. He has already proven that he can perform on the top level and that he is capable of playing for Manchester United. He has many good skills and qualities.

“We wanted to bring someone in who was capable of playing in the full-back positions to strengthen our squad. Brandon has played a lot at left-back for Manchester United, but we know he is also capable of playing on the right side, too.

“With Dimitris Giannoulis we have had only one natural left-back. For that, it’s good to have Brandon in the building and hopefully he can help us achieve our targets.”
