Williams thrilled to be part of it

Danny Williams couldn't hide his excitement as he became the next addition to the Royals ahead of the 2013/14 season.

Williams will become the third new recruit during this summer of rebuilding, and says that he can't wait to help the Royals in their promotion campaign.

"I'm excited because I see this as the next step in my career. I am really looking forward to the season and to try to get the club back to the Premier League."

"I heard of the interest when my agent called me, and I was excited because I heard a lot of good things about the club - especially from Gylfi because he is a good friend from Hoffenheim and a hero here!

"I spoke to the manager yesterday when I did my medicine check and he is a really great, nice guy. I'm looking forward to working with him, everything is perfect here."

The 24-year-old is an extremely versatile player, and he gave a brief message to Reading supporters about what they can expect from him.

"I would say I am versatile but I feel most comfortable in centre midfield as a defensive midfielder. During my time at Freiburg, I learned how to play in different roles on the pitch but I feel most comfortable at defensive midfield.

"I would like to say to the Reading fans that I will give 100% in every game, I want to show them that I am part of this club and that I'm proud to wear this jersey. I will do everything I can to help this team go back to the Premier League."
