Williams has 'no desire' to leave Swansea, says agent

The 28-year-old has been linked with moves to both Liverpool and Arsenal in recent weeks, but his representative insists the centre-back is not looking for pastures new
Swansea City defender Ashley Williams has no desire to leave the Capital One Cup winners, according to the player's agent.

Liverpool, now managed by formers Swans boss Brendan Rodgers, and Arsenal are rumoured to be interested in the 28-year-old, but representative Jamie Moralee is adamant that Williams’ sole focus is on Swansea.

"What I can say is that my player has got no desire to leave Swansea City," Moralee told the South Wales Evening Post. "There have been stories linking Ash but his situation now is no different from his situation over the past few years.

"Ash has always remained a Swansea City player. He is happy there, his family are there with him and he is playing better than ever because Swansea have given him a platform. He has been captain for much of this season and he thrives on that responsibility.

"If he is drawing the attention of the big boys then that is a good thing, because it shows he is developing and Swansea are developing. But he has never knocked on the chairman's door and said he wants to leave and he has never handed in a transfer request."

Though Williams’ desire to leave Swansea was played down, should rumours make way for a concrete offer then the Welsh international would consider it.

"If a club comes in and puts the money on the table, I am sure Ash and the Swansea chairman will have a conversation," Moralee added. "But it's quite early to even be suggesting this kind of talk because there are still quite a few games to be played before the end of the season."
