Brandon Williams Joins Norwich City
Williams started his career with Manchester United academy and his impressive performances at the youth level ensured he was promoted to the first team in 2019, making his debut in a league cup tie against Rochdale.
The 20-year-old full-back is excitedly looking forward to featuring for the Canaries and has thanked the club for the warm welcome he was given.
“It feels very different. It’s the first time I’ve ever played for a different club before but I’m just really excited to get started, meet everybody and get my season going,” Williams told the club website.
“It’s a massive club and I like the way they play. I’ve watched them over the years and seen how they play. The club like to play out from the back and play football. That inspired me to come here, and I think that the head coach can improve me as a player.
“Everyone has been so welcoming. I’ve enjoyed my time here already and I can’t wait to meet everybody. I’ve just got a feeling it’ll be a good year.”
Daniel Farke pleased with Brandon Williams signing
Norwich City manager Daniel Farke has expressed his delight with the acquisition of Williams and hopes he will help them to achieve success in the 2021/2022 campaign.
“We’re really happy that we have been able to bring Brandon in. This is an exciting deal for all parties, and we thank Manchester United for allowing us the opportunity to work with Brandon,” Farke said.
“Brandon is a young player full of potential. He has already proven that he can perform on the top level and that he is capable of playing for Manchester United. He has many good skills and qualities.
“We wanted to bring someone in who was capable of playing in the full-back positions to strengthen our squad. Brandon has played a lot at left-back for Manchester United, but we know he is also capable of playing on the right side, too.
“With Dimitris Giannoulis we have had only one natural left-back. For that, it’s good to have Brandon in the building and hopefully, he can help us achieve our targets.”
Williams could make his debut for Norwich when they take on Bournemouth in a League Cup tie on Tuesday.
