Liam Williams’ much-anticipated return from Saracens to the Scarlets has been confirmed by the Pro14 side.
Wales full-back Williams, who is still recovering from an injury sustained during the Rugby World Cup, left the Scarlets to join Saracens in 2017.
The 28-year-old has subsequently helped Sarries to two successive Premiership titles, along with a European Champions Cup triumph last season.
However, Williams – who on Saturday appeared to confirm the move on his official Twitter account – will return to the Pro14 with his former club after his contract at Saracens expires at the end of the season.

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at Saracens over the past three seasons,” Williams said.
“The environment has undoubtedly developed me as a player and a person. I am grateful for the support I’ve had from the players, management and supporters during this time.”
Before Williams leaves Saracens, he will be tasked with attempting to help the champions retain their Premiership status.
Saracens are 17 points adrift at the foot of the table, having been fined £5.36million and deducted 35 points for breaching salary cap rules.
