Swans 'Considering other Options' to Rhys Williams

Swansea City were reported to be ready to agree a fee of around £1.5m for Middlesbrough's Australian international Rhys Williams, but they are now thought to be 'considering other options', to bolster their squad in light of fitness concerns.

Rhys Williams, who made himself unpopular in Wales several years ago when opting to play for the country of his birth- Australia- rather than the Welsh international team for whom he played 10 times at under-21 level, was anticipated to be Swansea City's first January signing. However, unofficially, it seems that the Swans- whose decline is in part due to a multitude of absences- are now 'considering other options' in light of the Boro man's own injury record.

The versatile Australian is equally adept in defence or the centre of midfield, but interest is now thought to have cooled after medical staff expressed concerns at the details of the player's lengthy history of ailments. Williams has had numerous knee and ankle problems during his stay in the north-east, and the club are anxious not to add to the workload of an already busy treatment room.
