The move could limit his international appearances, under the senior selection policy which allows three non-Wales based players to be selected.
“Liam is arguably one of the most talented backs in Europe,” director of rugby Mark McCall said.
As one of Europe’s form three-quarters Williams is being widely tipped to be on the plane to New Zealand this summer.
After seeing his stock rise in the summer and autumn internationals, Williams could join be rubbing shoulders with future Sarries teammates Owen Farrell and Billy Vunipola on the tour later this year.
