Nafeza 2 world - Williams conceded at the end of the 2023-24 season that it was “plausible” Wood would soon be sold – and his view has not changed.

“He is still a Swansea player,” Williams added. “But he is certainly a player we are expecting interest in.

“With the contract situation and his mentality at the moment - not in any negative way, but he is very ambitious who knows there’s a lot of attention around him – I am still in the same place [regarding a potential exit].”

Williams says the fact that Martin has coached Wood before will only increase his desire to sign him for a second time.

“As head coaches, you can see the quality of a player on the pitch but unless you have worked with them, it’s very difficult to get a grasp of their personality,” said Williams, who had a spell as Martin’s assistant at Swansea.

“Unfortunately, Russell has worked with Nathan Wood and knows what a gem he is.

“I know there has been [previous] interest, then when we played Southampton [in January] they talked about how much they liked him, which is normal.

“I guess that interest hasn’t vanished, so I would expect them to be at least one of the clubs who are interested in him now.”
