Fulham’s Welsh international, George Williams, a wide midfielder, has agreed a loan deal through to the end of the season at St. Johnstone in Perth.

St. Johnstone manager Tommy Wright said: “George is a player I’ve known for some time, a player who’s played at the highest level for Wales, so I’m delighted to get him on board to help him get back to playing regular football, and back to the level that got him seven international caps.

“He is an exciting player and has an eye for goal.

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.

Fulham FC statement
The Club can confirm that George Williams has joined St Johnstone on loan for the remainder of the season.

Williams recently recovered from injury to score a brace in the PL2 against Reading at Craven Cottage, taking his tally to four goals and one assist for the season.

The Wales international has 17 First Team Fulham appearances to his names, and took in a spell at former club MK Dons in both 2014/15 and 2016/17.

Now north of the border, Williams joins a Saints side sitting eighth in the Scottish Premiership, with their next outing taking them to Hearts on Saturday.
