Williams - No plans for future

16th April 2019, 16:38 by Aidan Perkins

Everton's Ashley Williams admits he's not sure what the future holds for him as he approaches the end of his loan spell at Stoke City.

The Wales international has been with the Potters this season on loan from the Blues but he's set to return to Goodison Park in the summer.

However, his contract with Everton expires in June and, with it looking unlikely Marco Silva will be prepared to offer him new terms, his future is unclear.

The 34-year-old could reportedly be considering retirement but the former Swansea man insists he has options and will assess his situation at the end of the campaign, although it looks increasingly unlikely Stoke will offer him a permanent deal.

"I'm working for Stoke City, working for the manager and at the end of the season we'll see what happens with me," he told BBC Radio Stoke.

"I haven't planned anything, I haven't spoken to anyone about anything. I'm just trying to enjoy my football as much as I can and do what the manager wants me to do."

Williams, who has made 73 appearances for Everton, has been a regular for Stoke in the Championship, turning out 33 times so far.
