Alun Wyn Jones commits future to Ospreys by signing new contract

Ospreys announce that Alun Wyn Jones has committed his future to the region by putting pen to paper on a new contract.

Ospreys have announced that Alun Wyn Jones has committed his future to the region by signing a new deal.

The 28-year-old, who made his senior debut in September 2005, has agreed fresh terms that will keep him at the club until after the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

"I'm very happy to be able to resolve my future, which means I can now concentrate solely on my rugby," Jones told the club's official website. "It's flattering to have received offers from elsewhere, but at this point in my career my focus is on being in the right environment to ensure the longevity of both my domestic and international career.

"It's important to me that I'm playing the right level of rugby to ensure I am at my best, which is why it makes sense for me to accept the offer on the table from the Ospreys."

Jones's new deal is a welcome boost for Welsh rugby following yesterday's news that Leigh Halfpenny will leave Cardiff Blues for French outfit Toulon at the end of the season.
