Williams Completes Fulham Switch

Last updated : 31 January 2012 By Jim Bonner

Ryan Williams has sealed his transfer from to Fulham with the youngster signing a two-and-a-half year deal with the Cottagers.

The fee is reported to be around £400,000 as Pompey look to raise funds to pay the outstanding tax bill.

It's disappointing to lose a young talent but the bottom line is Williams barely featured for the first team this season and shouldn't harm Michael Appleton's plans too much.

All we know about the 18-year-old is that he has pace but we haven't seen enough of him to make a proper judgement. Who knows? We may have lost a gem on the cheap or Williams may turn out to be another prospect whose career descends into the wilderness.

I wish Ryan all the best at Fulham and I'm sure Pompey fans will be keeping an eye on his career in the Premier League.
