Australian national team manager Holger Osieck is supremely confident that Middlesbrough star Rhys Williams will do well in the English Premier League.

The 23-year old defender/midfielder, who has been linked with Bolton, Aston Villa and Newcastle United recently, is chasing promotion from the championship with Boro and Osieck is tipping him to succeed in the top flight no matter what path he takes to get there.

"He will play in the Premiership and I am convinced he has the quality," Osieck said.

"He's one of the up and coming guys who has really impressed me and done a great job whenever he's played. I'm very happy with his development."
