Rumoured to be moving to Newcastle in a deal worth £5m. that is peanuts for one of the top defenders in the Premier League. Minimum £12m if someone like Gary Cahill is going for £10m +.
i lend no credence to it.
"Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has put Swansea stopper Ashley Williams on his January shopping list.
Pardew has drawn up a list of possible new centre-backs after losing Steven Taylor to injury for the rest of the season, and Wales international Williams is on it after impressing in the top-flight this season.
The 27-year-old helped Swansea record their ninth clean sheet in Monday's 2-0 win at Aston Villa.
Swans manager Brendan Rodgers has slapped an £8million price-tag on Williams to try to scare off suitors, but Newcastle hope they can get him for £5m - and will offer him a big rise on his current £15,000-a-week salary.
Williams has become a firm favourite at Swansea since joining from Stockport in 2008 for £400,000.
If Newcastle are unable to prise him away from the Welsh side, they believe they could get Curtis Davies from cash-strapped Championship side Birmingham"
