Ashley Williams signs a four-year contract extension with Swansea City.

Swansea City captain Ashley Williams has put pen to paper on a four-year contract extension, the club confirmed on Friday afternoon.

Williams was linked with a move away from the club this summer, but his agent said yesterday that despite bids the player was happy to remain in Wales.

"I'm delighted to sign a new contract at Swansea City," Williams told the club's official website. "I've enjoyed fantastic success at this club and I want to keep helping Swansea City progress."

Williams arrived at the club in 2008 from Stockport County in a £400,000 deal and will now stay at the Swans until the summer of 2018.
