Williams enjoyed a successful loan spell at Championship side Ipswich Town towards the end of last season, after struggling to break into the first team at Selhurst Park.

Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy has already shown interest in taking the midfielder back to Portman Road, and the 20-year-old admitted he may have to consider a move away from Palace to seek first-team football.

"I spoke to my agent who says (Swansea) were interested," said Williams. "I need to play football, preferably at Palace, but if not I'd have to consider playing elsewhere.

"It's hard to think about (leaving) because I've been there for so long. If I can get in the team at Palace, that's the main thing.

"But I need to play football at Palace, and I wasn't last year because I ended up going on loan.

"Swansea are a great team. They've shown over the last few years that they can do it at the top level.

"I haven't heard much personally about if anything's been offered, but I'm sure I'll know more about it in the next few weeks."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
