According to The Sun, Danny Williams is set to turn his back on Reading this summer, rejecting a new contract and opting to sign for Huddersfield Town, ahead of their debut Premier League campaign.
Williams was out-of-contract at the Madejski Stadium this summer, and despite the Royals offering the USA midfielder fresh terms, he has opted for a move to West Yorkshire to link-up with Huddersfield.
The 28-year old will become David Wagner’s first signing of the summer, as he prepares the Terriers for their first top-flight appearance since 1972.
Town confirmed their promotion to the Premier League with a play-off final victory over Reading at Wembley last month.
Williams was part of the Reading side that lost to Town in the play-off final, and was a regular under Jaap Stam throughout the 2016/17 campaign.
The midfielder made 44 league appearances throughout last season, and featured throughout Reading’s play-off campaign, completing every minute of football across the three fixtures.
Whilst Reading will be disappointed to see Williams heading for the exit door, the Royals are reportedly leading the race to sign Newcastle United’s Daryl Murphy this summer, with Stam’s side competing with Birmingham City and Ipswich Town for the striker’s signature.
