Britton follows pack of Swansea players (most notably Routledge, Williams and Michu) who have decided to commit their future to the club amid the excellent performance of the team. Britton expressed his sheer joy of signing a new deal, saying “I’m delighted. I know I’ve said it before, but I would love nothing more than to finish my career here. The club has been my life for the last 10 years, apart from a six-month sabbatical at Sheffield United, of course, and there’s no other place I’d rather be playing my football.”
