The Wales captain, 34, is currently on loan from Everton at Championship club Stoke City but his contract expires this summer making him a free agent.

Jason Levien and Steve Kaplan, the Swansea City owners, are involved with the Washington-based side, who are one of a number of clubs keen on Williams.

He is also understood to be interesting Aston Villa and Huddersfield Town.

A source close to Williams said any discussions on his future will take place at the end of the season.

Williams, who has won 85-caps for Wales, is hoping to continue his international career under manager Ryan Giggs having made 37 appearances for Stoke this season.
