Williams And Bauza Close To Signing

Williams And Bauza Close To Signing

Swansea City are close to completing the permanent signing of Stockport County defender Ashley Williams.

It is believed the fee will be £350,000 to make the Welsh International's loan spell permanent.

Also close to signing a new deal is Spanish striker Guillem Bauza.

Manager Roberto Martinez commented on the situations of both players and told BBC Sport:

(On Williams) 'Negotiations are well down the line and we need to finalise a few things with Stockport and see where we are after that,'

'Bussy is just a matter of finalising a few details,'

'He has made it very clear he wants to play his football with Swansea City and we've seen him developing over the last 10 months in a fantastic way.

'He is a legend already in our history by scoring those two fantastic goals against Gillingham and he's one we are looking for a long future with Swansea City.'

How did you think Ashley Williams performed during his loan spell? Will he be a good signing?

I hope Bauza is a long term deal. As for Williams, I hope he has the ability to warrant his large price tag. Was surprised with his lack of impact in the last few games of the season.
