Schalke 04 are edging closer to the signing of William on loan from Wolfsburg.
With a deal understood to be imminent, William was left out of Wolfsburg's squad for Saturday's 1-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen.
Wolfsburg boss Jörg Schmadtke revealed on Saturday that there were still "a few talks" to be held, but that "it looks like" the right-back will head to Schalke on loan.
Schalke lock horns with Bayern München in the Bundesliga this afternoon.
