Joe Williams signed from Wigan Athletic on a four-year contract in August 2020. 

The 23-year-old central midfielder was Dean Holden's first signing and joined for an undisclosed fee.

Williams, who can be deployed as a defensive midfielder, came through the Everton youth setup where he played alongside now City teammate Liam Walsh, before making his Championship debut while on season-long loan at Barnsley in 2017/18. He gained further second-tier experience by spending the 2018/19 campaign on loan at Bolton Wanderers, before he moved to Wigan in a permanent switch from Everton last summer.

He has one England youth cap, having represented the England Under-20s in 2016.
