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

2 Premiership Teams Interested In Britton

Leon Britton's agent has told Sky Sports that 4 clubs plus Swansea City are interested in the midfielder's signature this Summer.

The 27 year-old is out of contract at the end of June and his future at the Liberty Stadium is much in doubt, as 2 Premiership clubs and 2 Championship clubs are interested in signing Britton, according to his agent Glenn Corcoran.

He told Sky Sports:

'Leon is facing what is obviously a big decision at this stage of his career and has not signed anything with anybody or given any verbal assurances.

'As things stand he will be a free agent on June 30 when his contract expires, but anybody who thinks he has already left Swansea is wrong.

'It would not be right for me to talk about specific clubs, but there are two in the Premier League and two in the Championship as well as Swansea,'


Agents certainly don't help Swansea City in situations like this. Of course they're always wanting the best move for their clients and in the agent's eyes, staying with the Swans probably isn't his best option. Top flight football could be available plus a much higher wage, but Britton faces the risk in not playing regular football if he does decide to join a Premier League club.

Wigan Athletic, Middlesbrough and Sheffield United are interested, but it's not known who else in the Premier League has joined the race to sign Britton.

'Everyone might be saying that Leon is sure to go to the Premier League, but he has got to be sure he will play because he would not be happy as a bit-part player or a squad player.

'Football is all about opinions - there will be some who will say Leon can't play in the Premier League and others who think he would be good enough.

'But there is no doubt in my mind that he is a Premier League player because of his quality, his energy, his first touch and his ability to pick a pass.

'Yes, he would need time to adapt to the pace and the physicality of the Premier League, but I believe he would do well there.'

agents don't give a *****e about the players and what they want, it's all about the commision from the deal, i for one don't think Leon will make it with Wigan, Gomez didn't and he was class little hope for Britton imo

I hope he stays, but if he feels it's time to move on then the best of luck to him. Although I do feel he will waste his career if he went to Wigwam's Lacktics - I'm not saying he can't play Prem, I'd just prefer to not see him in a relegation fight every season.
