Ashley Williams has urged Swansea City to keep hold of Liverpool target Wilfried Bony beyond the summer transfer window.

The Reds are expected to step up their interest in Bony after Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy failed a medical with Liverpool at the weekend.

I don’t know what will happen but we want him to stay and he knows we feel that way. He is very popular here

But Swansea captain Williams feels it is vital the Welsh outfit keep Bony to help the 2013 League Cup winners progress this season.

“It is very important he stays because he is a very good player, he has come back very focused, the best we have seen him. He is sharp in training and it would be a big boost to keep him,” Williams is quoted as saying.

“It would be bigger than getting a new signing – when you bring a new person in you are not sure how it is going to go.

“I don’t make any decisions at the club, but as players we want him to stay and we have told him that.

“We have lost players every summer, that is the nature of football and you have to move on when things happen.

“I don’t know what will happen but we want him to stay and he knows we feel that way. He is very popular here.

“He looks sharp and he is so hungry, he wants to score every day and win every game. I am sure that will serve him well.”
