Williams Delighted To Sign New Contract

Williams Delighted To Sign New Contract

Swansea City defender Ashley Williams says he is delighted to sign a new contract at the club.

The Welsh international has put pen to paper to extend his current deal to 2015.

The news is encouraging for all concerned at the club following media rumours suggesting that there is unhappiness amongst some of the senior players. As well as chairman Huw Jenkins and manager Michael Laudrup, Angel Rangel and Leon Britton are two other players who have rubbished the claims.

After signing the contract extension, Williams told Sky Sports that he is confident the club can continue to move forward in the Premier League:

'I'm delighted to get it signed,''

'It's dragged on a bit, but I'm happy to finally sign and be part of this team. I'm enjoying it here; it's a great place to be at the moment.

'If we continue to work as hard as we have been, we will continue to go forward as a team and a club.''


Williams also added that playing in the Premier League every week is what 'dreams are made of':

'I would never have believed it would turn out this way for me or the club. To captain my club, country and play week in week out in the Premier League is what dreams are made of.

'I've enjoyed every year I've been here. It's always been different, normally with a change of manager, but what has stayed the same is the closeness of the squad.

'One of the best things about playing here is the players. They are a great bunch and I look forward to going into training every day.''


Williams was playing in the bottom division in the Football League before his move to Swansea City in 2008 - where they current played in League One. The Swans have helped to develop his career - but Ashley too has helped the club rise up through the Leagues and into the top flight.

Williams' impressive and consistent performances for the Swans earned him a call-up to the Welsh squad, and he has gone a step further having been given the captain's armband by manager Chris Coleman.
