    • The exciting potential of Neco Williams is set to be rewarded with reports stating that the 19 year-old Right-Back is close to signing a new long term deal with the club.

      Goal (via The Mirror) reports that Jurgen Klopp is keen to reward the academy graduate with a contract which will keep him at the Reds until 2025.

      The Welsh U-19 international made major strides during the last campaign making 11 appearances in all competitions including three league starts.

      The impressive late season form of Williams was rewarded when he qualified to receive a Premier League medal and in doing so became just the fifth Welshman to receive the honour behind Man United trio Ryan Giggs and Mark Hughes and Clayton Blackmore along with Leicester City midfielder Andy King.

      Williams has been often praised by Klopp and despite only lasting 45 minutes in his debut start against Brighton due to receiving a yellow card, he saw plenty of potential.  

      “Football is like this, if you take a player off at half-time, everyone thinks it’s not good.

      “It was just that he had a yellow card, and the situation on that side was that we didn’t protect him well enough.

      “I liked [it] a lot, he’s confident,”

      “The two situations—yellow card, another foul—he can learn that, that’s absolutely no problem. I like how he played a lot.”

      The hard work of Williams has now won him the role of back-up to one of the best full-backs in world football in Trent Alexander-Arnold.

      The youngster recently discussed how he is closely analysing what makes his fellow academy graduate tick.

      “Definitely - in training now as I’m playing I’m watching him, I’m taking things in and taking stuff that he does into my game,”

      “In training now I’m pushing. 

      “I’m pushing him and he’s pushing me and it’s nice to have a little battle because I’m trying to fight for a place and so are all the other lads, so there’s nothing stopping us from trying to perform and putting in the hard work in training to fight for a place.”

      And just like anyone with ambition, he is not satisfied with where he is currently placed.

      “I just need to keep doing what I’m doing in training: keep improving, keep working hard, believe in myself and keep getting the minutes in.

      “Because if I’m doing that then for sure, the boss will hopefully give me some game time and I’ll show to everyone what I can do and what I’m capable of doing.”
