Reports that The Royals could be on the verge of selling Danny Williams to Premier League relegation-battling Swansea City are 'unlikely', according to Sky Sports.

The news first broke an hour ago, where according to Amy Lewis on the Deadline Day Live Blog over on Sky Sports:

"We know Swansea want to bring in a midfielder, with Reading’s Danny Williams a reported target.

"The club are in talks, but nothing has been agreed just yet."

The Swans have sold Jonjo Shelvey to fellow relegation strugglers Newcastle United this January. A striker that can find the back of the net seems to be a priority for them, but it looks like they're interested in our dynamic box to box midfielder to help fill the England international's shoes, even if the deal is unlikely.

Danny Williams joined the club in the summer of 2013 and has scored 10 goals and provided 4 assists in 96 appearances for The Biscuitmen since joining from Bundesliga side Hoffenheim.

The initial reaction to this news wasn't all that positive.

But let us dream in the meantime...

What do you think? Is selling Williams a good idea? Let us know below.
