Former Burnley youngster Williams eyes A-League or Asia move

Aryn Williams is seeking a club either in Australia or Asia to continue his football dream.

The 20-year old brother of Middlesbrough captain Rhys and Fulham winger Ryan departed Championship leaders Burnley at the end of last season after seeing his contract expire.

Since then, the right-back has trialled with Sheffield Wednesday, Swindon Town, Brisbane Roar and Western Sydney Wanderers but has not been able to find himself a home and admits he would now consider a shift to Asia if it would help reignite his career.

"I went to Sheffield Wednesday for a week on trial but I didn't particularly enjoy it there and they weren't currently looking for a right back within the first team or the reserves set-up," he said.

"I then went to Swindon Town for a game and they really liked me and invited me back for pre-season 2013/14 but again I had my sights set on playing in Australia and turned down the invitation from Swindon Town."

Williams added: "I have been on a couple of trials to Brisbane Roar and Western Sydney Wanderers.

"Unfortunately I was turned down on both occasions due to the fact that they had already filled their salary caps and the number of players that could be registered for the season had already been reached. It was a minor setback for me but I'm always ready for any offers thrown my way.

"If any opportunity was to arise within Asia I would definitely consider it as I want to further my professional football career where ever it takes me."
