    Prop Nathan Brown is within days set to re-sign with South Sydney for the next two years as the Rabbitohs move closer to finalising their squad for the 2017 NRL season.NSW rake Robbie Farah remains the key piece of coach Michael Maguires puzzle for next year. But Browns commitment is a significant boost for the club.Brown, 23, is one the NRLs most improved players this season and his performances from the bench have been crucial in the Rabbitohs late-season resurgence.Maguire has revived Browns career over the past two seasons, after he played just one game for Wests in 2013 and didnt play any NRL in 2014.I want to stay here, Souths have helped me to become the person and the player I have, Brown told AAP.Madge (Maguire) has been great for me and showed me what I need to do to be a professional football player.Browns ill-discipline was criticised earlier this year. But the hard-running and hard-hitting City Origin representative managed to work those bad habits out of his game.I have been pretty happy with my performances this year coming off the bench and lifting the team and lifting that energy, he said.I pride myself on that sort of stuff, on coming on and bringing my controlled aggression.Out-of-favour Tigers hooker Farah has been strongly linked to a move to Redfern for 2017.Souths, currently sitting in 13th place on the ladder with 18 points, play Newcastle and Canterbury over the final two rounds of 2016.

Barcelona says that its team doctors will "co-ordinate" with Evertons medical staff as Deulofeu recovers. Perth Glory have denied a report that Socceroo signing Rhys Williams is set to leave the club just 11 games into his A-League tenure.On Monday afternoon, Fox Sports reported that the stuttering Glory - which dropped Williams for the visit of Sydney FC on Saturday - would let the home-town defender leave.A Glory spokesman said the report was pure speculation and Williams was contracted for another 18 months.Rhys Williams is a contracted player and hes required at training, he said.The decision to leave him out of the squad for the visit of Sydney FC was a football decision and thats it.The length of Williams contract could be a key issue.The club announced Williams had signed a one-year deal on his signing in April, but now insist hes signed up until mid-2018.Under transfer regulations, clubs are allowed to approach rival players when their contracts have less than six months to run.Its understood Sydney FC were under the impression that Williams fell into that basket of players when they made a formal approach to the 28-year-old prior to their 4-1 defeat of the Glory on the weekend.Club chief executive Peter Filopoulous confirmed the Sky Blues approach was rebuffed.Sydney sent a letter but we promptly reminded them that Rhys has another year to run after this one and theyve apologised for the oversight, Filopoulos toold FourFourTwo.ddddddddddddThis time of the year players who have six months left (on their contracts), clubs are entitled to approach them.As a courtesy they write to the club involved to say they have intentions of speaking to their player.Those letters are flying all over the A-League at the moment. However in Rhys Williams scenario hes got another year to run beyond this one. It doesnt apply.Williams has yet to hit any great footballing heights since moving back to Australia after an injury-ravaged decade in the United Kingdom.At his peak five years ago, Williams was linked to English Premier League giants Liverpool on a multi-million pound deal.But two major Achilles injuries and osteitis pubis sent Williams career into a tailspin, and he was released by club Middlesbrough this year after 10 seasons of service.In Perth, Williams has struggled to adapt to life in the A-League and was notably at fault for the round one capitulation to Central Coast, a match the Glory led 3-0 after 55 minutes but ended up drawing.It remains to be seen whether any tension or issues between the club and player will result in the defender departing the club.Williams last played for the Socceroos in 2013.
