'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Britton: I'd Love To Finish With Swansea City

Leon Britton has rubbished rumours suggesting that he wants to leave the club to return a London club - and says he wants to finish his career at the Liberty Stadium.

The midfielder showed his frustration a few weeks ago about the rumours that were circulating - saying he wanted to leave and return to his home city.

You can understand any father wanting to be closer to his daughter, as she currently lives in London, but Leon said he's trying to balance life between seeing her and playing for the Swans.

Britton told the Evening Post:

'It has been difficult for me because my daughter is in London. There is an off-the-field issue there which is difficult for me because I don't get to see her as much as I would like.

'But that's life, I have to try to adjust around that and see as much of my daughter as I can.

'I am focused on my football but at the same time I want to be there for my daughter, see her grow up and be a dad.

'The international breaks help so I can see her and she comes up to see me for home games.


Britton has been at the club for nearly 7 years now, and he's experienced a number of ups and downs along the way.

His consistency, effort and determination for the Swans in that time has been superb, and along with Alan Tate - they're both true Jacks who want to finish their careers here.

Those rumours that were circulating earlier in the Summer were aided by the fact that Britton's contract expires at the end of the season, but he says there's talks to extend it:

'I want to be here — it's a balancing act that you have to get right.

'But I would love to finish my career here.

'We met with the club on Monday to talk about extending my contract here.

'I'm hoping it will be a long-term contract that would hopefully see me get a testimonial and that would take me up to 30 years old if it is all agreed.

'We are waiting for a call back from the chairman. When he does we will go from there. The ball is back in Swansea's court.'
