Jonny Williams has boosted Wales ahead of their 28 March Euro 2016 qualifier against Israel by returning to Crystal Palace training after injury.

A thigh problem means midfielder Williams, 21, has not played since November 2014.

He said: "I came back around Christmas and unfortunately had a bit of a set-back, but I'm just delighted to be back."

Wigan Athletic midfielder Emyr Huws will miss the trip to Israel.

Huws is out for the rest of the season after suffering an ankle injury during training.

There were also fears a hamstring injury would make Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey a doubt for the trip to Israel on 28 March, but Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has played that down.

Defender James Chester also faces a race to be fit for the game in Haifa on 28 March after having an operation on a shoulder he dislocated in Hull City's 3-0 defeat against West Ham in January.

Chester, 26, has become a key member of Coleman's side since he made his Wales debut in a friendly against the Netherlands in June 2014.
