Ospreys fly-half Sam Davies has pledged his future to the region by signing a new long-term deal.

The 23-year-old has made 82 appearances for Ospreys since making his debut against the Dragons in January 2012.

Davies won his first Wales cap in their 32-8 defeat by Australia in November and kicked a game-winning drop-goal in their dramatic late win against Japan.

"It's a huge honour to represent my home region and I'm extremely fortunate to be able to sign up again," he said.

In 2013, Davies helped Wales Under-20s to their first Junior World Championship final, scoring 61 points in all five games as he became only the second Welshman to win the IRB Junior World Player of the Year award.

"The coaches have really helped me, letting me know how they think I could improve, and I've really focused on those points. I've worked hard at them and hopefully that can carry on. I'll take all the advice I can get and hopefully improve my game more," he continued.

"I'm over the moon to get it all done and dusted. I've been away for the last few weeks so it's exciting to be back in this environment and I'm looking forward to what the next few years has to offer."

Davies becomes the fourth Ospreys player to sign a new deal in recent weeks after Dan Baker, Justin Tipuric and Dan Lydiate all committed their futures to the region.
