Swansea have ruled out the possibility of Ashley Williams leaving the Liberty Stadium and are keen to tie him down to a new deal.

The Wales international has just 12 months remaining on his contract with Swansea, who have had to fight off a number of bids already this summer.

Sunderland have been chasing the central defender in recent weeks, while Arsenal and Liverpool have also been credited with an interest.

Williams’ agent Jamie Moralee says the Swans have rejected more than one offer for his client.

“At the moment, there have been some bids coming in,” he said. “Swansea have rejected those because they think Ash is important – everyone’s clear on that.

“Swansea are very clear that Ashley is not for sale. Whatever offer comes in, he is not going to be sold.

“That’s the option they’ve got and we’re comfortable with that. We respect that because he’s their player, he’s under contract.”

Swansea could run the risk of losing him for nothing in 12 months but Moralee says Williams wants to stay at the club.

He added: “If Ashley signs another contract at Swansea, he will probably end his career there. I’d like to think we can reach an agreement because that is Ash’s preferred option.”
