Rhys Williams signs on loan
A positive action of a new signing at The Valley but it comes to something when a player that has played 6 minutes in two years is preferred to £1.4m signing Naby Sarr. 27-year old Rhys Williams has signed for a month and is expected to start ahead of Sarr this afternoon.
Williams at least knows his way around the English game signing for Middlesbrough in 2007 after moving from Australia as a 19-year old. He was made club captain 2012.
Williams has had a lot of injuries with a ruptured Achilles the latest but he has played in a few Boro U21 games and manager Aitor Karanka was keen to get him match fit out on loan. “He is a very good player but he needs games to get back to his best potential but it will be very difficult for him to play in this time at this minute so it may be that he needs to go out to another club to play.”
Another injury prone player is not ideal, but Williams does bring some much needed experience.
