Williams signs for Barnsley with Ramage deal on horizon

BARNSLEY have completed a deal to sign Fulham’s Australian winger Ryan Williams on a month’s loan - and are reportedly close to re-signing Peter Ramage from Crystal Palace.


The 20-year-old, who spent a spell on loan at Oxford United last term, could make his debut in Saturday’s Roses trip to Rochdale, managed by former Reds manager Keith Hill.

Wilson said: “He is another option for us on either side of the flanks and up top as well. He is a very creative player.”
