Scunthorpe United have had a bid for Fulham’s George Williams rejected according to a report from HITC Sport.

The 21-year-old striker is very highly rated and has been noted by many people outside of West London, even making the Wales squad for their incredible Euro 2016 campaign. But while many people have spoken of the promise he has, he is yet to realise that at Fulham. He has struggled to break into the first team, though he did impress for the U23s after being recalled from a poor loan spell with MK Dons.

And with Williams yet to show he can break into the Cottagers first team, some sides think they will be able to sign him. This idea is helped by the fact Williams only has one year left on his contract and could leave for what would be a tribunal fee next summer. And one of the teams looking to sign him were Scunthorpe who made a bid for him to try and bring him to Glanford Park.

But that offer did not work as Fulham turned it down and it appears that they will be trying to keep Williams for next season. Now it is up to Scunthorpe to decide whether or not they want to go back in and make another bid for the Welshman. The Iron are looking to challenge for promotion after losing to Millwall in the Sky Bet League One play-offs this time around and know that Williams could be a key addition, but could he simply cost too much?
