RYAN Williams has thanked Oxford United for making him a better player ahead of his final appearance for the club tomorrow.

The winger had made just six career appearances when he arrived on loan from Fulham last summer, but has relished being a first-team regular with the U’s this season.

Williams has scored seven goals in 41 games and is pleased with the way he has developed during the spell in Sky Bet League Two.

He said: “I go back to Fulham not only a better player but stronger mentally.

“I think I could do a job for Fulham and, fingers crossed, it’s in the Premier League.

“I’m just going to try and play at the highest level possible.”
