Message to Klopp: 'Fantastic' midfielder confirms his 'dream' is to 'play for Liverpool'

After a year of injuries, Liverpool youngster Jordan Williams is finally back in action, and he's determined to break into Liverpool's first team.

In September 2015, Williams suffered a serious knee injury whilst on loan at Swindon, and spent the next 12 months on the sidelines.

Williams describes his time out injured as 'hell', but he's back playing for the U23s now, and his ultimate goal remains the same:

“I’m feeling good. I’ve got my fitness back. I feel strong and now I want to kick on. My dream is still to play for Liverpool. If I perform well for the under-23s then hopefully that chance will come".

Some info about Williams:

* 20-year old defensive-midfielder, who can also play as a central defender. Contract expires: 2017.

* Description on the LFC website: "Extremely composed. Fine passing range. In both his defensive and midfield roles, he is an asset to his side, particularly [with] his excellent reading of the game".

* Nov 2014: Reds coach Michael Beale raved: "Jordan Williams has come out of nowhere. A few of the ex-players deemed as legends have mentioned Jordan as well. His mentality is fantastic and he deserves all the best.”

* Aug 2015: Called up to the senior Wales squad for the first time.

Clearly, with his contract expiring next summer, Williams has an uphill battle to earn himself a new contract, and an even tougher challenge to make it into Liverpool's first team.

Is Williams heading for the same fate as Rossiter, Sinclair, and Canos, or can he defy the odds and break into Jurgen Klopp's team?
