The Verdict: Get it done…
The Huddersfield-born talent is currently averaging 2.3 clearances and 1.5 aerial wins per league game (WhoScored), but is also a threat at the opposite end of the pitch.
The Tykes star has six assists and five goals to his name in 33 appearances in all competitions this season, showing how much he loves to get down the flank.
Williams also has the versatility to operate in five various positions, including on both wings and at centre-back, so this will be yet another attractive attribute to Heckingbottom.
