Crystal Palace youngster Jonathan Williams has signed a new five year contract with the club.

The 18-year-old midfielder made his debut in August and had a fantastic season culminating in being called up for the senior Welsh side and winning the Young Player of the Season award.

“I had a plan at the beginning of the season to take this club up to the next level and this included giving me the opportunity to blood a handful of young players and get them more experience,” Palace boss Dougie Freedman told the club’s official website.

“Jonny is a perfect example of one of those who has stepped up to the plate during the season and with the attitude, desire and work rate he displays day in, day out he can go on and become one of the best young players in the Championship next season.”

Williams was understandably delighted to have signed a new deal.

“It feels great to have signed a five-year deal with the club I’ve grown up playing for,” he said. Palace is a major part of my life.

“I’ve had a really good season, I never expected to play 18 games, score one goal and have six assists.

“I’ve had time to get stronger physically and psychologically as well since I’ve been injured and I’ve had great support from the fans, my family, the staff and the players. I’m looking forward to next season now.”
