Player Information

08 December 1996

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

The 23-year-old central midfielder singed for the Robins in August 2020 for an undisclosed fee.

Williams, who can be deployed as a defensive midfielder, came through the Everton youth setup, 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. Williams has played seven games for City so far this season (2021/22), producing a vital assist for Chris Martin against Peterborough. This goal sealed all three points for the Robins late on.
