The Australia Under-20 international has joined the U's on a deal until January and was an unused substitute for Saturday's 4-1 League Two victory away to Portsmouth.

Williams began his career in England with Pompey before switching to Fulham in January 2012. Last season he was sent on loan to Gillingham but failed to make an appearance under Martin Allen.

In the summer, the 19-year-old represented his country at the U20 World Cup in Turkey and then played for Oxford in pre-season before agreeing terms.

Wilder told the club website: "Ryan is a good player and will give us competition in an important area.

"He has a good pedigree, has pace, and is very highly thought of at Fulham, a club we have an excellent relationship with. He has a really good attitude and I am sure will do very well here."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
