Midfielder looks to 2014/15 with Reading

Royals midfielder Danny Williams will not play in this summer's World Cup in Brazil, following the announcement of Jurgen Klinsmann's 30-man USA squad.

The former Hoffenheim man, who came third in the 2013/14 Player of the Season vote, struggled with a knee injury towards the end of the campaign and was consequently omitted.

But Williams is already looking forward to next season at Madejski Stadium, and says he is happy in Berkshire.

"I feel very comfortable here is in this club," he said earlier this month.

"I make friends here, I enjoyed playing football here this season. I was dealing with injuries again and again which is frustrating, especially at the end of the season.

"But everyone – the team, the staff, the players and the fans did their best. Now I am just focusing on my recovery so I can try my best to help the team go up next year."
