‘He’d give them something different’ – Midfielder offered to West Brom: Opinion

Published

on

West Bromwich Albion could sign attacking midfielder Jonny Williams on a free transfer this summer, according to a report by Wales Online.

The 25-year-old is due to become a free agent in the summer.

This latest report states that Williams has been offered to a host of Championship clubs, including last season’s play-off finalists Derby County, as well as Premier League newcomers Norwich City.

Williams spent the second half of last season with Charlton Athletic in League One and played an important role in helping Lee Bowyer’s side win promotion to the Championship.

West Brom finished fourth in the Championship table last season and lost to Aston Villa on penalties in the play-off semi-finals.

So, would Williams fit in at the Baggies?

We discuss…

Chris Gallagher

“He’d give them something different.

“They were too predictable at times last season with a lack of creativity in the middle a concern.

“Whilst he wouldn’t always start, Williams could be the link between the midfield and forwards that has been missing at times.

“This could be a clever signing.”

George Brooks

“Williams would be a good signing for West Brom.

“The Baggies will be expected to challenge for promotion next season and while Williams might not be good enough to start every week, he would certainly be a good addition to their squad.

“He’s a creative player and would suit their style of play.”

Alfie Burns 

“After Harvey Barnes’ departure last season creativity was a real problem for Albion and was one of the reasons why the side missed out on promotion.

“I’m not suggesting that Williams is as good as Barnes, but he offers that spark from midfield that was missing.

“Fully fit, he’s a solid Championship player, and on a free, is the type of signing that Albion are probably going to have to make.”
