Ospreys scrum-half Rhys Webb has bucked the trend by agreeing a new two-year deal to remain at the club.

The Ospreys have been hit by a host of departures in recent weeks, with Gavin Henson having left and James Hook, Lee Byrne and Craig Mitchell all confirming their intentions to move at the end of the season.

However the 22-year-old Webb, a member of Wales Sevens squad that won the IRB World Cup in 2009, is delighted to have committed his future to the side.

"I'm very pleased to have re-signed, the Ospreys are moving forward and I'm just happy to be a part of it for another two years," he told the club's official site.

"The players and management here have a strong idea of where we want to go, and hopefully we can take the Ospreys onto bigger and better things.

"I had a few injuries last year but I've put them behind me and I'm really enjoying my rugby at the moment.

"I've had a good run of games that has given me the chance to show what I can do and my confidence is growing. I just want to compete for the number nine jersey.

"There's a lot of competition for places here, but it's an environment that I'm happy in. It's my home region, I'm proud to wear the Ospreys shirt and I'm looking forward to the different challenges of the next two seasons."
