​Swansea defender Mawson rejects West Ham link

Alfie Mawson has rejected claims he is set to leave Swansea City.

The centre-back has been a shining light during the Swans dismal 17/18 campaign, and recent reports have linked him with a move to West Ham United.

But the 23-year-old says he is focused on Swansea and hasn't ruled out staying in Wales even if the club are relegated.

"Whatever happens, happens. If offers come in then that is nothing to do with me. All I can do is affect my performances. I'm a Swansea player and I want to do well here.

"I don't want to be in this position again. I don't like having conversations about where we are in the league. I want to be a Swansea player in this league.

"It is flattering to hear certain things but I'm here and I have got to do what I can for this club.

"I'm contracted for another two-and-a-half years after this, whether that is Championship or hopefully in the Premier League, I am signed to be here so that's all it is at the moment, it's just talk."
