Nth Qld's Williams plays down Melbourne Heart link

North Queensland Fury striker David Williams is being linked with a move to incoming A-League club Melbourne Heart as well as a return to Denmark. The 21-year old former Australian youth prodigy is currently on loan with the Townsville-based Fury from Danish Superliga outfit Brøndby IF but rumours have started in regards to a move at the end of this season.

Despite this speculation, Brisbane-born Williams is not reading into anything at the moment and is just focusing on his football with North Queensland.

He also played down talk of a rift between him and his Danish club.

''Football is a difficult game in choosing where to go, I'll just take it as it comes, see out the season and take it from there,'' he said.

''I've got to be playing regularly and then go back and talk and see what happens. (There wasn't a falling out) between me and the club, it was with the coaching staff and the head coach. And it wasn't really a falling out, it was just the (frustration) of not being able to play.

''If you're not in the coaches' good books, you're not going to play.

''I might get a chance (next year) but I'm not looking too far forward into the future, my No. 1 priority is the Fury at the moment. That's for my agent to deal with.

''I just want to play games and see where I go from there.''
