Ashley Williams will not be leaving Swansea City this summer amid reported interest from Arsenal, according to the defender’s agent.

The 29-year-old has been touted as a target for Gunners as Arsene Wenger considers bolstering his defensive options ahead of the new season, with Sunderland also linked with the centre-half.

The player’s agent Jamie Moralee has confirmed that there have been bids for the Wales international, but said that Swansea remain firm in their stance that he is not for sale.

“At the moment there have been some bids coming in,” FourFourTwo quotes Moralee as saying. “Swansea have rejected those because they think Ash is important – everyone’s clear on that.

“Swansea are very clear that Ashley is not for sale. Whatever offer comes in, he is not going to be sold. That’s the option they’ve got and we’re comfortable with that. We respect that because he’s their player, he’s under contract.

“We’ve got to the point where they don’t want to take an offer so hopefully we can sign the right contract at Swansea – that would be Ash’s ideal scenario. Ash is very professional and he will continue to give Swansea everything he has.”
