Wales defender and national captain Ashley Williams has joined the club on a short-term basis.

Williams’ career began at Stockport County before he helped Swansea reach the second tier via the 2007/08 League One play-offs. An instant hit in South Wales, Williams made the move permanent for a then club-record fee.

After eight seasons with the Swans which included top-flight football after their 2010/11 promotion, Williams linked up with Everton for three seasons, before signing with the Potters on loan for the 2018/19 campaign.

Williams has been twice named in the PFA Championship Team of the Year (2009/10, 2010/11) and won the League Cup with Swansea in 2012/13 following his Championship play-offs win to reach the Premier League in 2010/11.
