Williams, whose contract is set to expire at the end of next season, has been linked with a move away from the Liberty Stadium, with the likes of Arsenal, Napoli and QPR reportedly interested in the 29-year-old.

The Wales captain is thought to be on holiday in Sardinia following the end of the Premier League season, while his agent Jamie Moralee is at the World Cup in Brazil.

Williams, who has been linked with a move to Liverpool in the past, joined Swansea from Stockport in 2008 for a fee of £400,000.

Talks have been ongoing to renew Williams’ contract as Swansea hope their captain follows in the footsteps of goalkeeper Michel Vorm and striker Michu in signing a new deal with the club.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
