The fringe Socceroo is turning heads across the continent

After making a strong start to life in Saudi Arabia with Al Quadisiya, Rhys Williams is attracting further transfer interest across Asia.

The Covert Agent can reveal J-League side FC Tokyo and K-League outfit Ulsan Hyundai are both keen to add the Australian defender to their squads next season. 

Williams has made 11 appearances to date for Al Quadisiya, playing his part in keeping three clean sheets with the club currently 12th in the Pro League.

The 30 year old only arrived in Saudi Arabia in July after an otherwise successful season with Melbourne Victory was spoiled by injury with the defender missing the club's grand final triumph.

Having struggled with injury for a few years in England, Williams is back to his best and was in the frame for a Socceroos call-up for the World Cup prior to his lastest injury. 

Now fully fit, the Australian centre-back is standing out and is playing alongside his countryman Jack Duncan at Al Quadisiya.
