Joe Williams helped Everton Under-23s become inaugural Premier League 2 champions in 2016/17.

The tough-tackling midfielder had been at the Blues' Academy since the age of seven, becoming a first-year scholar in June 2013.

He broke into the Under-21s set-up that season, becoming a near ever-present in the centre of the park while also aiding the Under-18s to Premier League glory.

In December 2014, Williams was named on the bench for Everton's first-team game against FC Krasnodar.

Williams’ performances in 2015/16 earned him the Under-21s Player of the Season award.

However, a knee injury sustained in the final fixture of the campaign ruled him out of action for six months, before he suffered another setback in November 2016, this time to his ankle.

Williams recovered in February 2017 and subsequently signed a new three-and-a-half year contract, extending his stay at Goodison Park until June 2020.

While playing a vital role in the triumphant Under-23s side, Williams was also an unused substitutes for a handful of first-team games towards the end of the 2016/17 campaign.

In July 2017, Williams signed for Barnsley on a season-long loan to gain first-team experience with the Tykes in the Championship.

Contracted until: June 2020
