Sheffield United fans on Twitter are desperate for the club to not sign Ashley Williams after they were linked to him in The Sun (June 8, page 67).
The Wales international spent last season out on loan at Stoke, and his performances clearly showed that his best years were behind him.
Williams was one of the Premier League’s most underrated defenders during his heyday with Swansea, but age has clearly caught up with him as his pace is nowhere near the level it used to be.
With Chris Wilder playing such a unique system with his centre-backs, signing Williams wouldn’t make much sense as he doesn’t possess the ability needed to play in the Blades’ free-flowing system.
Despite the 34-year-old being available on a free transfer, United fans have been urging their club to steer clear of him.
It remains to be seen whether or not the Steel City outfit will move for the veteran centre-half, but if he did join it certainly wouldn’t go down well with supporters.
Nothing captures the unpredictability of the Championship better than the video below…
Here’s what the Bramall Lane faithful have been saying about Williams on Twitter…
Too slow too old he has already had his best days

Can we avoid signing premier league experience when that experience consists of picking balls out of the net and looking round at team mates incredulously in front of the cameras. Just an idea.

Might aswell keep Craine what an atrocious signing that would be.
