Tony Pulis has no intention of selling Jonny Williams to Swansea and says the midfielder has to prove himself with Crystal Palace.
The Wales international has struggled to break into the Eagles' first team and spent the second half of last season on loan at Ipswich, where he caught the eye of several rival clubs.
Swansea are one of them and rumours have refused to go away suggesting he could be on his way to the Liberty Stadium. Williams would fit in with Swansea's style of play and he has hinted he would be interested in a move if an approach was made.
Wales boss Chris Coleman has also said the move would make sense, but Pulis has other ideas and insists the player is going nowhere.
"Jonny is a Crystal Palace player until deemed otherwise," Pulis revealed. "He's one player that there is always going to be speculation about that he could be going - you are never going to take that out of the game. If people want to talk about it, then they will talk about it.
"But Jonny comes back at the same time as the rest of the players. It is his responsibility to come back and do as well as he possibly can to get back in the team.
"He is a great lad and has got the potential - that is the word to use. He has got to fulfill that potential."
