Portsmouth Football Club can confirm that Ryan Williams will sign for Oxford when his contract expires at the end of the month.

The winger had been in negotiations over a new deal following the conclusion of the 2020/21 campaign, but has opted for a move to the Kassam Stadium.

A graduate of the Blues academy, he made his Blues debut in a Championship draw at Middlesbrough in the summer of 2011.

Williams left for Fulham a few months later and went on to play for Barnsley and Rotherham – as well having a loan stint with Oxford – before returning to Fratton Park in June 2019.

He scored eight goals in 91 appearances overall for the club and netted nine times last term, including a match-winning brace at Ipswich.

Oxford pipped Pompey to a play-off spot last month, but will be playing League One football again after losing 6-3 on aggregate to Blackpool.

Everyone at Fratton Park would like to thank Ryan for his service to the club and we wish him all the best for the future.
