Newcastle United are being linked with young Huddersfield Town prospect Jordan Williams in the Huddersfield Examiner? today.
The England U17 International plays at center-back which is not a position Newcastle have been storing in over the last three years or so, but it does seem like the club are interested in getting more English players into the squad – which is a good move.
Jordan Williams – 16 years-old – impressive youngster
Williams is still only 16 so he is one for the future and he’s doesn’t turn 17 until this October – he’s been at his home town club Huddersfield since 2009 when he was just 9 years old.
Jordan was born in Meltham which is some five miles outside of Huddersfield.
The youngster has been a regular in the England U17 side this season and he so far has 7 caps at that level and even at 16 he has been in the Huddersfield Town U21 squad this season.
Jordan is also likely to play for England in the upcoming Euro Under 17 Championship elite qualifying round games against Ukraine, Turkey and Finland in March.
As well as bringing in more players over the summer for the first team squad, Newcastle’s U18 squad has been very poor this season and the club is anxious to replenish the playing ranks at all levels of the club.
Newcastle really need a complete overhaul at all levels of the club this summer whether we remain a Premier League club or not – we seem to have become stagnant over the last couple of years.
And there’s nothing wrong with signing impressive English youngsters like Jordan Williams, because bringing them is so young could save us millions in the transfer market down the road.
