Fulham winger George Williams is open to making his loan move to St Johnstone permanent in the summer, according to The Courier.

The Wales international is currently on loan to the Scottish Premier League side and his contract with Fulham is set to expire in June. This would make him a free agent and he would be keen on joining St Johnstone on a permanent deal in the summer.

Williams, who is 22 years old, joined the Scottish side on deadline day in January and has enjoyed his time up north. He had fallen down the pecking order at Championship side Fulham and was eager to go out and get some regular playing time.

He started his career at MK Dons and scored his professional goal aged just 16. He was snapped up by Fulham when they were in the Premier League in June 2012. Since then, he has been back on loan to MK Dons twice and also had a loan stint at Gillingham in 2016.

Williams is an established Wales international. He represented them at U17, U19 and U21 level and made his international debut for Wales’ senior side in May 2014 against Holland. He has since made 6 caps and was part of the Wales side who got to the Semi-Finals of Euro 2016 in France.

Fulham are in contention for a promotion to the Premier League, though George Williams’ future looks set to be elsewhere.
