Wales fullback Liam Williams is set to make a return to Scarlets from Premiership club Saracens at the end of the ongoing season.

According to a report in walesonline, it is understood that the Welsh regional club might have secured the services of the 28-year-old by paying an annual remuneration in the range of £400,000.

Williams started his professional rugby career with Llanelli RFC in 2010 but joined Scarlets a year later. After spending six seasons with the Scarlets, Williams made his debut in the English Premiership after signing a deal with Saracens ahead of the 2017/18 season.

In his 21 Premiership appearances for Saracens, he went on to score 16 tries but his contract with the Allianz Park outfit ends with the ongoing season drawing the interest of number of clubs but the fullback has decided to rejoin his former side.

The news is also a big boost to Wayne Pivac's Wales side as Williams will now be available for all the training session and game after returning to the province.

Williams has featured in 62 Tests for Wales since his debut in 2012 and was also part of the 2015 and 2019 World Cup squads. He also featured for the British and Irish Lions in all the three games of the drawn series against New Zealand in 2017.
