Southampton remain an interested party, but Daniel Farke has reportedly convinced Williams to join the Canaries.
Norwich have bounced right back into the Premier League after a season in the Championship.
In their 2019-20 Premier League campaign, Farke’s side had a woeful defensive record, conceding 75 goals.
Reinforcements at the back would therefore be necessary if they aim to stay up this time around.
After a frustrating season at United, Williams would hugely benefit from a loan move within the Premier League.
Williams is a dynamic player with an aura of optimism. He can play on either flank comfortably and has excellent work-rate bombing up and down the pitch.
He has already racked up 50 first-team appearances at such a young age for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and is regarded as a future prospect by people around the club.
Man United are currently looking at a short-term option in Kieran Trippier, who is expected to leave Atletico Madrid as per Spanish Outlet Diario AS.
At this stage of his career, Williams needs an appropriate amount of game time to adapt to the demands of the Premier league.
The 20 year old would flourish in a Norwich side who implement an exciting philosophy of attacking football inculcated by their manager Daniel Farke.
