Hammers' midfielder Gavin Williams is being linked with a possible loan deal - though rumours linking the Welshman with Swansea City may be wide of the mark.
Williams, a £250,000 signing from Yeovil Town in December 2004, is known to have been a long -term target of Swansea boss Kenny Jackett. However, Alan Pardew seems unwilling to let the 25 year-old go on a permanent deal at present. Although a spell out on loan would appear to be on the cards, it is believed that Hammers would prefer Williams to join a club at Championship level rather than Swansea, who currently lie in 10th place in League One.
Williams made ten first team appearances last season, netting once in the process, though he found his opportunities limited by injury.
