Swansea City have accepted a bid for Ashley Williams from Everton

Liverpool, United Kingdom – Swansea City have accepted 14 million euros bid for captain Ashley Williams from Premier League rivals Everton, Sky Sports News reports.

The 31-year-old spent the last eight seasons with Swansea City. He’s expected on Merseyside this afternoon ahead of signing a two-year contract.

Earlier this month, Swansea had rejected a bid of 11.6 million euros for the center-back from the Toffees.

Williams, whose contract is due to run until 2018, has played more than 300 games for the Swans since joining for 350,000 euros from Stockport in March 2008.

He has not played in any pre-season matches having been given an extended break after captaining Wales to the semi-finals of Euro 2016.
