Cardiff City have confirmed that they have signed Jonny Williams from Charlton Athletic.
Jonny Williams Joins Cardiff City
Return to the Championship
Williams is returning to the Championship after six months of League One football with the Addicks. He has made 21 appearances so far this season, scoring twice.
The Welsh international, should he steer clear of injuries, will prove to be a quality addition for the Bluebirds. Williams possesses excellent skill and control on the ball and is regularly a handful for defenders.
The 27-year-old began his career with Crystal Palace, featuring regularly for the Eagles before breaking his leg on international duty with Wales U21’s. Williams never truly recovered from that, suffering reoccurring injuries before leaving the club on a permanent basis in 2019.
He made 70 appearances for Palace before his move to Charlton.
What Was Said?
Speaking to the Cardiff City website, Mick McCarthy expressed his delight at the arrival of the Welsh international.
He said: “I think it is one of the best deals of the transfer window. Especially late on, we’ve managed to get Jonny Williams in.
“I worked with him at Ipswich. He was fabulous. He brings a smile to the place. He’s very, very talented and he’s Welsh, of course.
“He’s delighted to be here. If he can play to his ability, then he’ll rip it up.”
Williams said: “I’m delighted. I’m really looking forward to working with the Gaffer and TC again.
“They’re great. I think I played the best football of my career under them at Ipswich. They gave me the belief and freedom to express myself.
“I’m going to give it my best. Hopefully I can score some goals and assist. The main aim is that we win games.
“That’s what I’ve come here to do. To win as many games as I can in a Cardiff City shirt. I can’t wait to get started.”
