According to the Mirror, Swansea City have rejected Everton’s £10 million bid for Ashley Williams.

The Blues are thought to be keen on the Wales international as they look to improve their defence this summer.

They had made a move for him last week, with reports that they had already agreed a deal and he was close to completing a move.

Indeed, rumours on Tuesday had suggested that the Swans defender was on Merseyside to complete a medical ahead of a move.

However, it appears that the potential deal has hit a snag as Swansea City have rejected their £10 million bid, according to the Mirror.

They report that Huw Jenkins has dug in his heels and is now demanding an improved fee for one of his side’s key men.

At this moment in time it is unknown whether Ronald Koeman and co will return with such a bid.

Williams would be an excellent signing to say the least, but they are likely to be hesitant to pay an inflated fee for a player who is set to turn 32 next month.
