According to The Athletic, Southampton wanted to sign Neco Williams on loan from Liverpool on transfer deadline day. It has been reported that the Saints initially expressed interest in the right-back before making a move for his teammate Takumi Minamino.
However, according to report, Liverpool turned down the approach for the right-back from Premier League rivals Southampton. The defending Premier League champions have defensive issues of their own and did not want to part company with the Wales international right-back.
According to WhoScored, Williams has made two starts and two substitute appearances in the Premier League for Liverpool so far this season. The teenager has also made two starts and one substitute appearance in the Champions League for the Reds, providing one assist in the process, according to WhoScored. Liverpool are third in the Premier League table at the moment with 40 points from 21 matches, while Southampton are currently 12th in the standings with 29 points from 21 games.
