The Swansea City defender – who again captained his country on Sunday – has been linked with a move to both newly promoted Newcastle and West Brom since the season ended although he insists that he remains committed to the Swans – at least for now.

Speaking to the Western Mail, Williams said “I’m not involving myself in any of the rumours

“I am just planning on having a nice break and getting myself fit for Swansea.

“That’s all I can do.

“If an amazing offer came along, the club accepted it and I couldn’t turn it down, then that’s just what happens in football.

“But, at the minute, I am contracted to Swansea and that’s all I really need to say about it.

“There’s only so long you can ignore Premiership interest because that’s where every footballer wants to play.

“But I am a Swansea player at the moment.”

Williams is also aware of the speculation that still surrounds the future of manager Paulo Sousa and he hopes that it will have resolved itself by his return from his holiday “It’s not an ideal situation." he said

“You want your club situation to be settled

“You want to be able to go back and everything be sorted.

“You see what’s in the papers and I know there have been a few question marks.

“I would just like to know that everything has settled down.

“I haven’t heard anything concrete come out of the camp though so hopefully it has.”
