The experienced Wales international has been the subject of much interest in his services over the course of the past 12 months, with the likes of Premier League giants Liverpool and Arsenal, as well as high-flying Serie A outfit Napoli, all understood to have expressed an interest in signing Williams.

However, now that the powerful centre back has helped to secure the South Wales strugglers place in the Premier League for another campaign, the 29-year-old will soon be able to sit down with interim head coach Garry Monk and the club’s chairman to discuss the possibility of extending Williams’s stay in the Principality.

“I haven’t really thought about it so far,” said Williams, whose current deal at the Liberty now only runs until June 2015.

“And there’s not been much to think about really because I still have another year on my contract.

“I haven’t spoken to the chairman about it but I’ve never had a dispute with him over a contract. At some point will sit down and talk.

“The whole club has been focused on staying in the Premier League, so I didn’t want to open negotiations. I think he knows that and he has the same attitude. But now we’re safe, we’ll finish the season strongly and then we can talk.”
