Swansea reject £10m bid for star defender

Posted by

Swansea City have rejected an offer for Ashley Williams reported to be worth £10 million from Everton according to the Guardian.

Williams was closely linked with a move to Everton who were reported to be on the verge of clinching a deal for the Wales international yesterday.

A Swansea club spokesman stated that the Swans do not want to sell their star defender over the summer transfer window: “We are not looking to sell him, and therefore we have turned down the offer currently on the table.”

The Daily Star reported yesterday that the Toffees were set to sign Williams over the next 48 hours just yesterday.

The report claimed that the defender had already agreed a deal with Everton and the club were expected to officially confirm the move over the next few days.

The Welsh defender joined Swansea from Stockport eight-years ago in 2008 for £300,000 and has gone onto make 350 appearances for the Premier League outfit.

The experienced defender captained Wales to the semi-finals of Euro 2016 in France this summer.

Williams joined Swansea for £300,000 in 2008 under the stewardship of former Toffees boss Roberto Martinez.
