Tranmere Rovers have signed free agent midfielder Ryan Williams on a free transfer, as confirmed by their official club website.

The 27-year-old has signed a contract with the League Two side until January and will provide Micky Mellon’s side with another attacking option.

Williams, who is from Birkenhead, rose through the youth ranks at Chester City and had spells as a youngster with Colwyn Bay and Llandudno before moving to Rhyl in 2011. He impressed for them and scored 16 goals in 35 games which earned him a move to League Two side Morecambe in 2013.

The midfielder then spent two years with Morecambe before he was snapped up by Brentford. However, his time with the Championship side was short lived and his contract was terminated after seven months by mutual consent after he only played once. As a result, Williams joined Scottish Premier League side Inverness Caledonian Thistle in February 2016.

Williams then left the United Kingdom in July 2016 and moved to Canada to join Ottawa Fury. He impressed for the North American Soccer side and won their Fans’ Player of the Year before moving on again to Brazilian second division outfit Paysandu in February this year.

He played just once for them and left the club in June. Williams has now been given another opportunity in England with Tranmere Rovers and will be hoping that he can settle down with the League Two side after an adventurous career so far.
