Swansea boss Laudrup insists Williams could still stay
"When there are rumours about these clubs wanting someone from here it is because the player has done well - and Ashley has," said Laudrup.
"We will have to cope with these stories and remember it means people have seen what we have done here and what the players have done.
"And I think Ashley has had a great season. He and Chico have been a great pair and I will be very unhappy to lose that pairing for next season."
