“You don’t look no further than Ashley Williams”
But his absence from Francesco Guidolin’s squad for today’s friendly with French outfit Rennes suggests the deal is back on.
Williams, 31, is one of the most experienced central defenders in the Premier League having made more than 300 appearances for Swansea since joining from Stockport County in 2008.
He played in all of his country’s games and scored one goal at Euro 2016 in Wales’ first appearance at a major international tournament since 1958.
Manchester United legend, and friend of Williams, Rio Ferdinand thinks he would be the ideal signing for Ronald Koeman.
