West Ham United linked with Brandon Williams

Manchester United defender Brandon Williams has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford at the end of this season.

According to the Sun, Norwich City are looking to sign the talented young full-back on loan, but they face competition from Southampton and West Ham United.

The 20-year-old needs to play regularly at this stage of his career, and a loan move away from United would be ideal for him next season.

Norwich are expected to lose Max Aarons this summer, and Williams would be a superb replacement.

The report adds that David Moyes is looking to use the England under-21 defender as a squad player. Williams is versatile and can play in either full-back position.

The Hammers have recently loaned Jesse Lingard from Manchester United, and the 28-year-old has proven to be a great success at the London club.

However, they may find it difficult to secure Williams if they fail to guarantee that he will be a regular starter.

The youngster is unlikely to want to join a club as a squad player, and Norwich could be a more sensible option for him.
