Swansea, Williams in contract talks

Swansea are trying to keep captain Ashley Williams at the club with a new contract.

Swansea manager Garry Monk has confirmed the club are in talks with captain Ashley Williams about a new contract.

Wales international defender Williams has been a reported target for Swansea's Premier League rivals Arsenal and QPR.

But Monk says he is hopeful that both Williams and World Cup-bound striker Wilfried Bony will remain with the Swans.

"We are in negotiations with [Williams'] representatives and trying to put a deal across so that Ash will be here for the future of the club," Monk told the South Wales Evening Post.

"I know Ash wants that, I want that, the club wants that, and that's what we are working towards as we speak."

As for Ivory Coast forward Bony, Monk added: "I spoke to him at the end of the season and he knows how I feel, he knows how the club feels, he knows what I expect from him.

"I just want him to concentrate on the World Cup, have a good World Cup and he will be coming back as a Swansea City player."

Midfielder Leon Britton, meanwhile, has signed a one-year contract extension at the Liberty Stadium.

Britton had two years left to run but has now had another 12 months tagged on.

The 31-year-old has made 467 appearances for the Swans since signing for them in 2002, with his only break coming with a brief spell at Sheffield United.
