The Wales centre-back has one year left on his contract at the Liberty Stadium, so Swansea might be tempted to cash in on him now rather than risk losing him for nothing next summer.

Williams has been linked with a move to Queens Park Rangers but Sky sources understand that Sunderland boss Gus Poyet has made the first move for him.

Williams, 30, signed a permanent deal with the club at the end of the 2007-08 season after a successful loan spell from Stockport County.

He has been a virtual ever-present rock at the heart of the Swansea defence since, and he signed a new contract in 2012 which keeps him at the club until next summer.

Swansea boss Garry Monk confirmed earlier this week that the club had opened discussions regarding a new deal for Williams.

"We are in negotiations with his (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."

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!
