Wales boss rates Swansea defender Williams as top four material

Wales boss Chris Coleman sees Swansea City defender Ashley Williams as good enough to play for one of the Premier League's top four sides. Centre-half Williams has been linked with Arsenal and Liverpool. Swansea boss Michael Laudrup admits he fears he could lose the Wales captain during the summer.

"If I was manager of a top-four club I'd have no qualms in looking at Ashley Williams and trying to sign him," Coleman said.

"I'm not surprised that he's being linked with big clubs [and] I'm not surprised he's done as well as he has done.

"He's a terrific defender and a great personality [and has] a great mentality towards football.

"He's playing in the best Swansea City team I've ever seen."
