Brandon Williams has joined Norwich City from Manchester United on a season long loan. Williams will likely be competing with Dimitris Giannoulis for a starting place at left-back, having made 14 appearances in all competitions for us last season.

Speaking to Norwich’s club website, Williams talked about the reasons behind his decision to go out on loan.

I’m getting myself out of my comfort zone. I’m from Manchester, all my family and friends are there. Everything I know has been in Manchester so to come here and focus on my football will be really good for me. 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 and meet everybody and get my season started on a personal basis.

Williams also talked about what he feels like he can bring to Norwich on the pitch, in terms of his ability and the experience he’s already had.

I’m comfortable playing as a full-back on both sides. I prefer to play on the left more, even though I’m right-footed. I’m very aggressive, I like to play football as well and play out from the back. I’m a very forward-thinking defender and I just want to bring some aggression and leadership to the team, learn on that and hopefully mature as a player.

I’ve played for Manchester United in so many different competitions and I’ve played against and trained with some of the best players in the world. Coming here with all that experience will help me as a player.
