Fulham are set to lose their midfielder George Williams to Scottish Premiership side St. Johnstone before the transfer window comes to a close at the end of this month. According to recent reports in the Scottish press, the Saints are closing in on a move for the Cottagers midfielder and could secure his services before the transfer deadline. St. Johnstone manager Tommy Wright is on the lookout for some new additions to his squad before Wednesday’s deadline after not tasting victory at home since September which has led to his side sitting just three points off the relegation play-off.
Some sources in the Scottish media are claiming that the 22-year-old midfielder is close to making a move to Scotland. It is believed that Tommy Wright is close to reaching an agreement with Fulham for the Welsh talent and his transfer could be sealed within the next 48 hours.
The Northern Irishman has made it clear in recent weeks that his team requires some reinforcements in the January transfer window, especially after the transfer of Michael O’Halloran to Rangers earlier this month. His side suffered a bitter defeat to Partick Thistle on Saturday which indicated how much his squad needs a new makeover. It is highly likely that the Saints will make three more additions before the end of the current transfer period.
Williams could be the first to arrive on a loan deal until the end of the season. The winger has seven international caps for his nation but has failed to feature for the Fulham senior team this season. He has fallen out of favour after returning from his loan spell at MK Dons in the summer. The 22-year-old made his Wales debut four years ago after coming through their youth ranks and his last international cap was in his country’s match against Northern Ireland in 2016. The midfielder has played in 6 matches for Fulham in the Premier League 2 and the EFL trophy, scoring 4 goals and providing one assist this season.
It is clear that his talents are getting wasted at Craven Cottage and a move might be beneficial for all parties. The Cottagers are currently occupying 6th place in the Championship standings, five points behind an automatic promotion spot and second-placed Derby County. They have done well in the league recently and are well in contention to secure a playoff spot at the end of the season.
The departure of Williams could leave them a bit vulnerable to cope with injuries but if they can find a suitable replacement for the player, there is no reason why this move won’t benefit both the clubs and the player. Only time will tell what lies ahead in the future of Williams.
