Middlesbrough utility man Rhys Williams has handed manager Tony Mowbray a huge boost by signing a new four-and-a-half-year contract.
The 23-year-old Australia international, who has attracted attention from a host of Barclays Premier League clubs in recent months, has opted to remain at the Riverside Stadium after starring in Boro's npower Championship promotion bid this season.
Williams said: "I've always said I wanted to stay. I'm happy here and that's the main thing. I'm settled and get on well with the manager and the lads.
"I've no reason to leave, except for my dream of playing in the Premier League - and I want to get there with his club."
