Swansea reject £10m Williams bid from Everton

Ashley Williams

Swansea captain Ashley Williams has won 65 caps for Wales, scoring two goals

Swansea City have rejected a £10m bid from Everton for central defender Ashley Williams.

The Wales and Swans captain was reported to be close to agreeing a move to Goodison Park.

Williams, who turns 32 later this month, is contracted to Swansea until 2018 and could be set to stay.

A club spokesman said: “We are not looking to sell him, and therefore we have turned down the offer currently on the table.”

Williams has played more than 300 games for the Swans since joining for £300,000 from Stockport in March 2008.

The Wolverhampton-born defender has not taken part in any pre-season matches having been given an extended break after captaining Wales to the semi-finals of Euro 2016.

Williams was linked with a move to Everton during the summer of 2015 – a time when the Toffees’ England international John Stones was being linked heavily with Chelsea and Manchester City.

With City still hopeful of signing Stones, Everton are actively seeking potential replacements in central defence.
