Michael Jordan Williams (born 6 November 1995)- more commonly known as Jordan Williams- is a Welsh footballer who played for Liverpool until 2018, having come through the academy.
Williams made the move to Liverpool from Wrexham along with Ryan Crump as an Under 14-level footballer. He progressed through the ranks to make his Under 18s bow on 28 January 2012, appearing as an 85th minute substitute against Stoke in a 3-1 win. He made one more appearance in his first season with the side, before being promoted to the Under 18s proper for the 2012-13 season. He was also named as a member of Liverpool's 2012-13 NextGen Series squad. Despite this, Williams only amassed five appearances for the U18s during the season.
In the 2013-14 season, Williams made 15 appearances for the U18s and netted one goal- this coming in the FA Youth Cup. Towards the end of the season, Williams made the step up to the U21s, with whom he became a permanent fixture in defence, racking up eight appearances and netting once. His rise continued with a substitute appearance in the Liverpool first team's post-season friendly away to Shamrock Rovers on 14 May 2014.
On 23 September 2014, Williams was a surprise debutant in Liverpool's League Cup clash against Middlesbrough at Anfield. In the 79th minute, Williams replaced fellow Academy debutant Jordan Rossiter at central midfield and produced an assured, competent display as the Reds drew 2-2. The match went to a penalty shootout which Liverpool won 14-13. Williams elected to take the first spot kick of sudden death, and cooly slotted past keeper Jamal Blackman.
Williams continued to make the substitutes bench throughout the season, but failed to make another appearance. On 10 July 2015, it was confirmed that Williams would go out on loan to Swindon Town for the whole of the 2015-16 season.
After failing to make any impact on the first team since his debut, Williams was released at the end of the 2017-18 season.
Williams is a versatile footballer who is capable of playing both at central midfield, centre back or right back. Liverpool describe him as "an extremely composed player" with a "fine passing range," and is also commended for his impressive reading of the game.
