Ryan Williams was today at Fulham’s training ground with a view to a move to the Premier League outfit.

The News can reveal the Pompey teenager is moving close to agreeing a £500,000 deal with the Londoners.Williams checked in at the Cottagers’ Motspur Park base, with an exit from the Blues on the cards.

The 18-year-old is set to feature in a trial game for the Londoners tonight.

That then looks likely to pave the way for his departure to be completed.

The Australian talent made the breakthrough with Pompey this season, getting six appearances off the bench under his belt.

But with Pompey desperate to generate funds to cover their £1.6m unpaid tax bill, he is now set to be the first player to leave the club.

The transfer window shuts tomorrow night at 11pm.
