Owain Fon Williams hopes his move to Inverness Caledonian Thistle will cement his place in the Wales squad.

Williams has joined the Scottish Cup holders following his release from Tranmere Rovers in May.

The 28-year-old, who made his Caley debut in the 1-0 Europe League defeat by Astra Giurgiu, was in the Wales squad for June's Euro 2016 qualifier against Belgium.

"Regardless of how Wales are doing I want to be part of it," he said.

"Everyone wants to be part of this now. We are nearly there and all we have to do is keep it going and win a few more matches."

Wales are three points clear at the top of Group B following their 1-0 win over Belgium on 12 June, with four games remaining.

Gwynedd-born Williams hopes to be included in the squad for September's qualifiers against Cyprus and Israel.

Williams had said he was prepared to move abroad after his release by Tranmere following their relegation from League Two.

But the former Crewe and Stockport County stopper is now looking forward to a new challenge with John Hughes's side.

"I've played all of my football in the English leagues so coming up here and playing in the SPL will be a massive challenge and one I'm looking forward to," Williams added.

"They finished third in the SPL last season also winning the Scottish Cup, which put them in the Europa League."

Williams is the second Welsh goalkeeper to join a Scottish Premier League club with Danny Ward joining Aberdeen on a season-long loan from Liverpool.
