The Wales international spent the second half of last season on loan with Championship champions Fulham, but seems to have no place at Anfield with the arrival of Calvin Ramsay who will compete for a position in the squad with Alexander-Arnold.

The Wales international says goodbye to the club having made 33 first-team appearances and winning Premier League, FIFA Club World Cup and Carabao Cup titles.

But he is not the only one joining Nottingham Forest, the club is also close to agreeing a deal for Bayern Munich left-back Omar Richards to complete their squad on both flanks.

Williams thoughts on his move

"I am very excited to join Nottingham Forest and help this great club progress in the Premier League. Forest is a club with an incredible history and The City Ground is a very special place that I can't wait to experience live in the coming weeks. I have spoken to the head coach and he has shown me great ambition and I can't wait to join my new teammates and prepare for the challenge ahead," acknowledged the youngster.
