Jonathan Williams: New deal done

The 18-year-old midfielder made his Eagles debut in August last year and went on to be named Young Player of the Year at the club's annual end-of-season awards.

"It feels great to have signed a five-year deal with the club I've grown up playing for. Palace is a major part of my life," he told the club's official website.

"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.

"I've had great support from the fans, my family, the staff and the players. I'm looking forward to next season now."
