Williams Ignores Exit Speculation

Williams Ignores Exit Speculation

Ashley Williams has rubbished speculation linking him with a move out of the Swans following reports linking him with a move to German side Wolfsburg.

Sky Sports believed last week that former England boss Steve McLaren was interested in signing him at Wolfsburg, but the Welsh international defender says he's ignoring speculation about his future and is enjoying his time at the Liberty Stadium.

Williams said:

'I'm not bothered about it — I did German at school and I wasn't any good at it anyway,'

'You only get linked if you are playing well, and I'm happy to be linked because it shows you're doing your job properly.

'I don't know whether there was any truth in it but I've not thought about it.

'I'm not going to be kicking down the manager's door asking what's happening.

'I'm on a great journey here. I'm enjoying the season and I'm not worrying about these other things — I answer your questions and forget about it afterwards.'


Williams consistent and excellent performances for the Swans have naturally linked him with moves to a number of Premier League clubs but it looks like Swansea will survive another transfer window without losing such a key player as Ash is.

His agent admitted that he has the Premier League in his sights, and despite new contract talks breaking down recently, he believes he'll still be with the Swans until the Summer at least.

In June, the player will only have 12 months remaining on his contract, and if he still decides not to sign a new deal, should the Swans consider cashing in on him? They could arrive to a similar situation as Darren Pratley's, who is free to leave this Summer after turning down a new contract last year.
