Fulham winger Ryan Williams has rejoined League One side Barnsley on a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee from Fulham.

The Australian youth international's arrival was announced on stage at the Barnsley's annual open day at Oakwell yesterday.

Williams spent a short loan spell at the club between October and December last year, impressing in his seven appearances before injury forced him to return to Fulham.

The 21-year-old fits the young and hungry ethos that manager Lee Johnson is trying to create at the club, and admitted that it was the Barnsley boss's vision that convinced him to come back.

"I'm delighted to have joined Barnsley on a permanent basis, as I much admire the playing philosophy of Lee Johnson," said the former Portsmouth man.

"I'm extremely excited to have the opportunity to work with him on a daily basis and to have the platform of this great club with its wonderful supporters to showcase my talent and skills."

The Reds have been committed to bringing in promising young talent this summer, and have beaten off Championship clubs to a number of signings.

Williams has been impressed with the recruitment undertaken so far, and declared that it was a key factor in choosing to return.

"One of the reasons for my decision was that lots of other young and talented players, such as Marc Roberts and Alfie Mawson, have also decided to come and play for Lee and to work under him even though they had opportunities to join Championship clubs," he added.

"This was further enhanced when you see gifted young players such as Ben Pearson also choose to join Barnsley on loan ahead of Championship clubs. I'm looking forward to getting to work on the training ground with Lee, the staff and the players as soon as possible."

Fulham Football Club statement
Fulham Football Club can confirm that Ryan Williams has made a permanent move to Barnsley FC for an undisclosed fee on Sunday morning.

The Australian winger joined Fulham in January 2012, and made three appearances last season before he went on loan to Barnsley in October for three months.

We wish Ryan all the best in the future.
