Burnley Make Approach For West Bromwich Albion Starlet Harry Williams
Burnley Football Club have made an approach for West Bromwich Albion youngster Harry Williams, according to reports from Football Insider. The Midlands club revealed on the 24th March 2021 that the centre-back has been told to find a new club by the Baggies.
A Burnley source told Football Insider the club have been in contact with the Williams camp over a potential deal that would see him head to a new Premier League club.
Intriguingly, the defender’s last appearance for the Albion Under-23s came against Burnley in January. West Brom lost the Premier League 2 match 3-1 that day at the Fraser Eagle Stadium. It now appears that will be the last time Williams wears the West Brom jersey in a match at any level.
Burnley have pounced after being impressed by the youngster’s pace and aerial ability, as well as an attitude that has impressed sources.
Both clubs are in division two of Premier League Two, which means they don’t play the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham or Chelsea. The Clarets currently sit third in the league table, whilst West Bromwich Albion are rock bottom which has parallels with their senior side. Harry Williams joined the Baggies in 2018 on a scholarship deal.
The young Englishman is out of contract in the summer and will leave after three years. However the teenager has yet to make his senior West Brom debut but has played for the club in the English Football League Trophy as well as being a regular for the youth teams. He has played four times for the U23’s this season, with his last outing coming against Burnley in January 2021.
