Norwich City have completed the season-long loan signing of Manchester United defender Brandon Williams, the club has confirmed.

Williams first broke into the Man Utd first team in 2019 and has made 50 appearances for the Red Devils since then.

He has scored one goal for United, coming in a 3-3 draw against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane in 2019.

The left-back had been heavily linked with a move to Carrow Road all summer with Sky Sports claiming they beat ‘multiple clubs’ to the signing.

Speaking to canaries.co.uk, Williams said: “It feels very different. It’s the first time I’ve ever played for a different club before but I’m just really excited to get started, meet everybody and get my season going.

“It’s a massive club and I like the way they play. I’ve watched them over the years and seen how they play.

“The club like to play out from the back and play football. That really inspired me to come here, and I think that the head coach can really improve me as a player.

“Everyone has been so welcoming. I’ve really enjoyed my time here already and I can’t wait to meet everybody. I’ve just got a feeling it’ll be a good year.”

Head coach Daniel Farke said: “We’re really happy that we have been able to bring Brandon in. This is an exciting deal for all parties, and we thank Manchester United for allowing us the opportunity to work with Brandon.

“Brandon is a young player full of potential. He has already proven that he can perform on the top level and that he is capable of playing for Manchester United. He has many good skills and qualities.

“We wanted to bring someone in who was capable of playing in the full-back positions to strengthen our squad. Brandon has played a lot at left-back for Manchester United, but we know he is also capable of playing on the right side, too.

“With Dimitris Giannoulis we have had only one natural left-back. For that, it’s good to have Brandon in the building and hopefully he can help us achieve our targets.”

Norwich are hoping to have Williams available for Tuesday evening’s Carabao Cup tie against Bournemouth.
