Danny Williams may see his Premier League dreams come true from the club that stopped them short.

The USMNT and Reading midfielder, 28, saw his side fall to Huddersfield Town in the Football League Championship’s playoff final in May, as the Terriers outlasted the Royals in penalty kicks.

Now Huddersfield boss David Wagner, a fellow German-American, could make Williams his first new signing of the summer. The Terriers have also been linked with a move for last year’s loan star, Aaron Mooy of Manchester City.

The Sun claims that “Wagner has tracked the midfielder since they were both in Germany, with Williams starting his career at Freiburg and Hoffenheim.”

Williams has been a dynamic box-to-box force for Reading since arriving from Hoffenheim in 2013, scoring 14 goals in 156 appearances.
