Swansea boss determined to keep best players

Swansea Brendan Rodgers has no intention of selling any of his prized assets this month to his Premiership rivals. Centre-half Ashley Williams and left-back Neil Taylor have been the latest Swans players linked with moves elsewhere, to Newcastle and Arsenal respectively.

Rodgers said: "I'm sure there will be a raft of players linked to clubs in the coming weeks, but we want to keep our best players.

"The spirit is unique at this football club and the players can see the progress they are making here as individuals.

"There is a lot of speculation and in a way it's great because it shows the players are doing well.

"But they also understand that it comes on the back of performing well.

"It's nice for them to be recognised but they know they are at a great club that is moving forward and they understand that speculation is part of this business. We don't take too much notice of it."
