Swansea City have rejected a £4million bid from Sunderland for Ashley Williams and are keen on Levante midfielder Pape Diop who is valued at £3m.

The Wales international is stalling on a new contract and looks set to leave the Liberty Stadium this summer.

On the move? Ashley Williams
Wanted man: Pape Diop

Williams, 29, has a year left on his deal at Swansea, and manager Garry Monk has not given up hope of signing him to a new deal.

But if an agreement can't be reached the Swans will look to sell their skipper to avoid losing him for nothing next summer.

Players leave clubs for nothing at the end of their contacts all the time. We're definitely not desperate for £4m .. We'd probably buy someone in and run his contact down with appearances off the bench. More likely to see him actually sign a new deal than see him leave at all
