Ashley Williams: Sunderland have reportedly made a bid

Press Association Sport understands thee Black Cats have made Swansea an offer in the region of £4m for the 29-year-old, who is yet to agree a new deal at the Liberty Stadium, prompting a flurry of interest.

Williams has a year left on his current contract, but could leave the Swans for free next summer if he does not agree an extension.

Poyet and sporting director Lee Congerton are currently in the process of reshaping the squad at the Stadium of Light with West Brom defender Billy Jones and Wigan midfielder Jordi Gomez already on board following the departures of Phil Bardsley and Craig Gardner.

In addition, Sebastian Larsson has agreed a new three-year contract, although fellow midfielder Jack Colback's future remains uncertain with derby rivals Newcastle among his suitors.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
