Here's your round-up of all the latest Swansea City news for Friday, April 12.

Williams eager for Allen talks

Swansea City boss Luke Williams says he's keen to hold contract talks with midfielder Joe Allen, but admits a new deal is not "completely straightforward".

The 34-year-old is out of contract this summer and may have already played his last game for the club due to a toe injury.

"We are definitely going to be talking to all of the players who are out of contract and of course with Joe as well," said Williams.

"Joe is an incredible player and an incredible player for this club. He proved for me when he came on the pitch that he's still a really good player and really capable so we're definitely going to be having discussions.

"But there is a discussion to be had because it's not completely straightforward."

Wood out of Rotherham clash

Nathan Wood is set to miss Saturday's clash with Rotherham United, although the defender could well return to action before the end of the season.

Wood missed the midweek win over Stoke City due to a suspected calf problem, and he is now poised to miss out on the visit of the already-relegated Millers.

Allen, Kyle Naughton and Przemysław Płacheta are also sidelined, along with long-term absentees Josh Ginnelly and Sam Parker.

“It is not something really bad, with Woody,” said Williams.

“He is a tough guy, so if he can feel something is impeding his performance then you know there is something there.

“There is nothing major on the scan, but there is something there stopping him from playing how he wants to play. I think it will be a short-term injury.

“Przemy has had a minor setback, so he has had a re-scan and we are waiting on more information.

“It’s a shame as we felt we had a good grasp on the plan to help him get back, but it might be longer than we expected.

“It will be difficult for Kyle to get back before the end of the season. I was very happy with his performances when he played, he was excellent and he is a top person with a top mentality.

“With Joe we will have to play it by ear as time is ticking away, and we need to make sure he is completely recovered, it would be irresponsible to do otherwise.

“If he is healed and has training time then good, but we will need to see.”

Williams makes Gareth Bale comparison in hailing Swansea star

Luke Williams has lauded Josh Key for his 'Gareth Bale-type' display in Swansea City's 3-0 win over Stoke City on Wednesday.

Key was on hand to thump home a third goal on the night against the Potters, following a slick piece of play from Jamal Lowe, in a move that capped off a sensational night for the Swans.

"It was like a Gareth Bale-type of full-back tearing forward and he has so much power," Williams told the BBC afterwards.

"I felt sorry for the 'keeper, when he pulled the trigger back I thought, 'I know what's going to happen here'. That was brilliant. His performances have been really good and I'm really pleased for him. I think that'll give him a bit of extra bit of confidence for what he can achieve.

"I didn't see him play for quite a while when I got here, then he came into the team and he'd been away for a while so you can feel a bit out of sorts. He's an exciting player."
