Liverpool transfer; Premier League club agree personal terms with £12 million Liverpool star
According to Football Insider, Nottingham Forest, a newly promoted team, and Liverpool full-back Neco Williams have reached a personal agreement (via Wales Online). Neco Williams appears to be out of options at Liverpool.
The right back, who is 21 years old, spent the second half of last season on loan at Fulham, a team in the Championship.
The Cottagers were led by Williams to the Championship title and re-entry into the Premier League. In the lower division, he made two goals and two assists.

Trent Alexander-replacement Arnold’s at right back has already been signed by Liverpool this summer. Calvin Ramsay has joined the Reds from Aberdeen in Scotland.
Ramsay, who is only 18 years old, seems like a long-term choice. Neco Williams is now further down the Anfield hierarchy as a result.
