Swansea City defender Garry Monk has handed the captaincy to Ashley Williams.

Monk has revealed he is stepping aside as Swansea City skipper - to hand the armband to Williams.

"It's been an honour to have the armband and that will never change, but I spoke to my missus and my family about it over the summer because it was something that had been bothering me," he told the South Wales Post.

"I am not about to give up on anything or any of my duties at the club or the community, but to wear the armband ... I feel it is the right thing to have someone doing that consistently."
