Wales Manager Chris Coleman is expected to change national captains in a bid to improve his side’s recent hapless performances.
Arsenal’s playmaker Aaron Ramsey currently holds the role but the former Fulham and Coventry manager is set to make a change.
It’s thought that the decision has been made in the wake of the 6-1 thrashing from Serbia in the last round of qualifiers, with Swansea defender Ashley Williams set to take over the captaincy.
The decision comes not long after Coleman risked upsetting the Arsenal midfielder, when he asked Ryan Shawcross if he would ever consider a role in the Welsh national team defence.
Despite being a brave and controversial decision for the captaincy, Ramsey is due to be axed from the role, even though he has only held the armband for a short spell.
Wales face crucial qualifying fixtures against both Scotland and Croatia in the next 10 days.
