Crystal Palace midfielder Jonathan Williams has signed a new four and a half year contract with the club.

The 20-year-old is yet to start a Premier League game for Palace this season, making all of his nine appearances for the Eagles from the bench.

Williams has come through the junior ranks at Selhurst Park, joining the club at just eight-years-old. The academy graduate has made 64 appearances for the club in all competitions since his debut back in 2011.

The Welsh international played an integral part in Crystal Palace's promotion campaign from the Championship last season, as well as playing in the play-off final at Wembley.

He told the official Palace website: "It's a great honour to play for Palace and now we're in the Premier League it can't get much better than that."

"I'm very proud to be playing for Palace and to be signing another contract,"

Palace currently sit bottom of the table under manager Tony Pulis, but are just one point adrift of safety as they go into tomorrow's game against fellow-strugglers Stoke in south London.

And, victory over the Potters would drag Mark Hughes' side right back into the relegation mix, with just six points separating the bottom 11 teams.
