Derby County, Aston Villa and Leeds United are all monitoring Kidderminster Harriers midfielder Ed Williams, according to the Daily Mail.

The Championship trio will also have to face Premier League interest to sign him as Kiddersminster brace themselves for moves in the January transfer window.

Williams, who is 23 years-old, has been prolific for them this season in the National League North and has scored ten goals in 14 games. His performances of late have also earned him a call-up to the England C team.

He started his career at Cheltenham Town but never broke into their first-team. He dropped into non-league with Gloucester City in the National League South. He played over 80 games for the Tigers and after scoring nine goals for them last season, he was snapped up by Kidderminster in the summer.

Williams has helped Kidderminster, of whom are managed by former Fleetwood Town and MK Dons coach Neil McFarlane, get to 4th in the table this season. However, his time at the Aggborough Stadium could be cut short soon amid interest in him from the Football League.

Derby County are a side being credited with an interest. The Rams are on top form at the moment under Frank Lampard and will be plotting potential acquisitions for January.
