New dad George Williams has settled happily into family life in Scotland.

And he is open to the idea of putting down football roots with St Johnstone.

The Fulham man’s loan deal at McDiarmid Park runs out in a few weeks, and so too does his contract at Craven Cottage.

Tommy Wright has been impressed with the Welsh international and Williams admitted that signing a permanent deal with Saints is an option that club and player may explore in the close-season.

“I’ve said before I’ve loved every minute up here,” he said.

“We live in Dunblane and it’s beautiful. I’m sure he (his son, Carter) wouldn’t complain if he was brought up here.

“It’s a completely different lifestyle off the park and I enjoy the fast tempo on the pitch. It’s exciting and everyone is so determined to win and it’s challenging.

“The boss has mentioned it briefly, but we haven’t sat down and talked about the anything. He just wants me to keep playing games and do well and we’ll see what happens at the end of the season.”

Carter was only born a few days ago but he’s already taken in his first football match.

“My missus (Ella) brought him here today so it was good to see him in the stand before the match,” said Williams.

“He’s a week old today, so I can tell him when he’s a bit older he saw me when he was just a week. He’s a little Scot, born at Forth Valley Hospital.

“It’s been a big change, not as much sleep as I’m used to. I’m looking at about five hours a night if I’m lucky, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.” “It was a physical game and we were prepared for that. We’ve come out unscathed with no injuries so that’s good.”
