Rhys Williams: Eyes on Premier League
Middlesbrough star Rhys Williams has reiterated that he will look to leave the club if they are not promoted this season.
Williams, a product of Boro's famed academy system, has 18 months left on his current deal at the Riverside and talks over a new contract have stalled.
But Williams insists that he is not even thinking about money when it comes to his future, but playing in the top-flight again is his only ambition.
"It's not about money. It's about my dream of playing in the Premier League," he told Australia's Fox Sports.
"My dream is to get this club up, and if something happens and we don't go up this season, then yeah, I want to have a look around."
A host of clubs have been linked to the classy 23-year-old, who is at home in defence or midfield.
"It's obviously nice to hear people saying I'm doing well, and it gives me confidence on the pitch," he continued.
"I'm delighted with the speculation as well as it's always nice to be linked with the Premier League."
Boro currently sit in third place in the Championship, just two points off the automatic promotion spots.
