Swansea skipper Williams not worried about Arsenal interest

Ashley Williams says he is only focused on the season ahead with Swansea City.

Ashley Williams says he is only focused on the season ahead with Swansea City.

The Welsh centre-back has continually been linked with a summer move to Arsenal but he insists he is only worried about what is happening in his own backyard.

“I'm totally not bothered about it all (by Arsenal’s interest),” he said.

“All I've thought about during the summer was coming back in the best shape that I've ever been in. I worked harder than I ever have, even when I was on holiday, to come back right for this season because it is a huge challenge.

“All I am focused on is the team here at Swansea and what we have put together. We spoke a lot during our (pre-season) stay in Holland about different things.


“We talked about what we want to do as a side and what we need to do, and I am fully focused on that.”
