Fulham have signed Liverpool right-back Neco Williams on loan until the end of the season.

His signing follows Denis Odoi's permanent transfer to Club Bruges for an undisclosed fee.

Williams, a 20-year-old Wales international, joins the Championship leaders with the club five points clear at the top of the table.

He has made 33 appearances for Liverpool and has 17 caps for Wales.

He made his senior debut towards the end of the Reds' Premier League title-winning season in 2019-20.

Fulham co-owner Tony Khan told the club's website: "Neco is a great young talent and I'm delighted to welcome him to Fulham for the rest of the season.

"It's important, especially with Denis now leaving the club, to bring in a player of Neco's quality to ensure the strength of the squad."

Fulham FC statement
The Club is delighted to confirm the signing of Neco Williams on loan from Liverpool.

An attacking right-back, Williams will remain at Craven Cottage for the remainder of the 2021/22 season.

Tony Khan said: "Neco is a great young talent and I’m delighted to welcome him to Fulham for the rest of the season.

"It’s important, especially with Denis now leaving the Club, to bring in a player of Neco’s quality to ensure the strength of the squad."

The 20-year-old arrives in SW6 having featured this season in the Premier League, UEFA Champions League and Carabao Cup for the Reds, and World Cup Qualifiers for Wales.

Born in Wrexham, Williams joined Liverpool at Under-9 level, progressing through their academy before making his senior breakthrough in 2019/20, a season that ended with him getting a Premier League winner’s medal.

He already has 17 senior caps for Wales, in which he’s scored twice, and featured in every one of their matches at last summer’s European Championship.
