Williams Makes Loan Switch To Barnsley

Midfielder Joe Williams has joined Barnsley on a season-long loan.
 
The 20-year-old will gain Football League experience by spending the 2017/18 campaign in the Championship with the Tykes.
 
Williams, who has been with the Blues since the age of seven, moves to Oakwell after helping Everton Under-23s win the Premier League 2 title last season.
 
He missed the majority of the 2016/17 campaign with knee and ankle injuries but regained full fitness in February and was named on the bench by Ronald Koeman for a handful of Premier League matches without being called upon.
 
Earlier this year, Williams penned a new long-term contract which extended his stay at Goodison Park until June 2020.

 
Barnsley head coach Paul Heckingbottom is pleased his club have continued their relationship with Everton after Blues youngsters Gethin Jones and Callum Connolly also had loan spells with the Yorkshire side in recent seasons.
 
He said: “We have been looking at Joe for a while and have been to see him play a few times. We have had success in player recruitment from Everton in recent times so I have to thank them for continuing to trust us with that.”
