The Mail is reporting that Reading’s Danny Williams is a target of Newcastle United this summer.
Williams has been one of Reading’s best players over the last three years and had an excellent season last term.
He was born in Karlsruhe, West Germany and brought up in Germany and is the son of an African-American father and a German mother .
He was therefore eligible to play at the senior International level for either Germany or the United States.
Danny Williams – US International who plays for Reading
After getting a US passport in 2011 he was called up by the United States team for two friendlies in October 2011, and made his first appearance for the USA on October 8, 2011 in a 1–0 victory against Honduras.
That was a few months after Jurgen Klinsmann was appointed manager of the USA team.
According to the report in the Mail Aston Villa and Sunderland are also said to be interested in the player.
He has played 20 times for the US with two goals and seems to be in demand at the moment, with Newcastle having already contacted Williams’ representatives concerning a possible move to Tyneside.
He has played 109 times with 11 goals for Reading and in total has made 234 first team appearances with 15 goals in Germany and in England.
Danny is another Championship player we have been linked with this summer, but Rafa Benitez is still to make his first signing ever for Newcastle.
