Rhys Williams hints at Australia move

Rhys Williams has strongly suggested a move to the Australian A-League may be on the cards at the end of the season.

Williams, who has just returned back to Boro after a loan spell at Charlton Athletic, was speaking to SBS about what may be next for him with his contract up at the end of the season.

"Sometimes you need to start again and it might be a good option. If somebody wanted to take me there and it would be good for my future and my family, I’d definitely look at it."

"The league is growing and going there is something I've been discussing with my agent. We've had a few chats with different people and the thought appeals to me."

"Come the summer I would be able to head back home, so if anybody is interested they should give me a call!"

After 11 years with Boro, this is the biggest indication we've seen from Rhys Williams that his Middlesbrough FC career may be over.

A player who was touted with Australian bookmakers as the next Australian captain, and has the ability to do so, has had an injury-plagued career.
