Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins has claimed that the club haven’t received any bids for their captain Ashley Williams, despite reported interest from Arsenal, reports.

The 28 year old has been linked with a move away from the Liberty Stadium all summer, with some reports suggesting that Williams was looking to move to a club that is challenging for a place in the Premier League’s top four.

Jenkins has made it clear that Swansea won’t let their captain leave and claimed that the club haven’t received any formal offers for the defender.

“We have had no phone calls about any of our players,” he told reporters. “And we hope that continues.

“Ash has grown with us. His performances and personality have grown with the club and he is a vital part of our team.

“He is a big part of our defence and now he is captain as well. He is a good leader to have at the club.

“As always, we want to keep those players and we hope he is with us for many years to come.”

Williams was fantastic for Swansea last season, helping the Swans to win the League Cup and finish in the top half of the Premier League table.

The Welshman’s impressive performances has reportedly led to interest from Arsenal, with manager Arsene Wenger looking to bolster his defence by signing Williams before the end of the transfer window.
