Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup insists Ashley Williams will not be sold this summer.

Williams is a target for Liverpool and Arsenal.

“When there are rumours about these clubs wanting someone from here it is because the player has done well – and Ashley has,” said Laudrup.

“What else can I do? I can’t call Arsenal and say ‘Is it true?’ – and I don’t think Arsene Wenger would answer anyway, he has other things to think about. It is just part of the game.

“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.”
