Daniel Williams has been with the Swans since under-eight level.

The central midfielder, whose father Nigel was also a scholar in SA1, progressed through the youth ranks before signing his first professional contract in the summer of 2019.

Having broken into the under-23s side towards the end of the previous campaign, Williams was a regular feature for the development side in 2019-20.

Despite sustaining a broken metatarsal in October, he still racked up 11 appearances in all competitions - two of which came during the run to the Premier League International Cup quarter-finals.

Williams also enjoyed a taste of the senior environment during the back end of the season, regularly training with the first-team squad after the Swans returned from lockdown, and was the 21st man for the home victories over Bristol City and Brentford.

After putting pen to paper on a fresh deal in the summer, he continued his progress during the 2020-21 campaign; scoring in the under-23s' 5-1 rout of Cardiff, while making his Wales Under-21s debut and appearing on the bench for the Carabao Cup defeat at Newport and Championship victory over Rotherham.
