Wales captain Williams has been strongly linked with moves to Arsenal and Liverpool this summer with both clubs looking to bolster their defensive options.

Laudrup is aware of the speculation surrounding Williams' future after another impressive campaign for the central defender and admits they may lose one of their key performers this summer.

He said: "There has been a lot of talk and let's see what happens.

"He extended his contract not so long ago, like I did.

"Maybe we have to accept one player will go but not any more. We have to strengthen to consolidate because a lot of the teams below us in the table will spend more money.

"Those sums are above what we pay so we have to do things in different ways.

"There is a lot of work to do this summer. One thing is to find them and another to then go and sign them."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
