Derby, Derbyshire, GB - 26 year old English veteran of the Championship, forward Jerome Williams, stated that he is excited over his pending move to Major League Soccer (MLS) as he transitions from being a grizzled veteran to a promising youth within a few months span.
"I've been playing professionally since I was about 16/17 years old," stated Williams to The Nutmeg News. "However, I'm really excited to be considered a youth again in a new league."
Williams started with the youth academy at Sheffield United before moving and getting his break with the u-16 Fulham academy team. There he got a chance to play for the Fulham first team during an FA Cup game as well as a various number of first team games before making his mark with consistent performances for Derby County in the Championship. Over the past 7 years, Williams was a vital cog for Derby County but now he states, "It's going to be great to have a new fanbase consider me full of potential and a young player. It's been nearly 9 years since I was considered that."
"We are excited to bring over a player that is still developing," stated Don Garber, Commissioner of Major League Soccer. "Jerome is a promising youth that played in some of the biggest academies and teams in England."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Williams shows his solid pedigree of mediocre performances.
