Bath have confirmed that winger Jeff Williams has signed a contract extension that will keep him with the Aviva Premiership club until the end of the season.

The 29-year-old, who has represented England Sevens team previously joined the Recreation Ground outfit in 2015 and has scored seven tries in the 20 games for the club since then.

Williams is currently recovering from a ligament tear that he sustained during the previous season.

Thanking the club for the support, Williams is looking forward to returning to action and make an impact in the second half of the season.

“I’m really looking forward to getting back on the pitch and doing what I can to help the second half of the season go the way we want," he said to the club's official website.

"It’s been a long road back from my injury, and I’m really thankful to the Club for supporting me through it, and to the physios and strength and conditioning coaches for getting me back to fitness."

Meanwhile, Bath rugby director Todd Blackadder had high praise for Williams.

"Jeff is a fantastic character to have in the squad. He’s supported the squad in whatever way he can whilst he’s been injured, as well as helping out coaching some of the young Academy backs, and that positivity – as well as his ability on a rugby field that we’ll see soon – is a really useful asset to us."
