Skysports.com understands Crystal Palace starlet Jon Williams has signed a new long-term deal at Selhurst Park.

Palace have moved to tie down the exciting midfielder to a new contract to ward off interest from a number of Premier League clubs.

The 17-year-old is regarded as one of the best young talents to emerge on the scene and he impressed in the recent Carling Cup win over Wigan, scoring his first goal for the club in the victory.

The likes of Liverpool and Newcastle have been credited with an interest in Williams, but Palace have now secured the Wales Under 21 international on a new four-year deal.

Williams' agent, Jamie Moralee, managing director of New Era Global Sports, admitted the youngster was delighted to stay at Palace and that the Eagles had fended off interest from a number of clubs to keep hold of the skilful playmaker.

"Jon is a fantastic talent and he has a great career ahead of him and he is thrilled to show his commitment to Crystal Palace and is looking forward to continuing his development under Dougie Freedman over the coming years," Moralee told skysports.com.
