Swansea Look To Offer Britton & Sinclair New Deals

Swansea Look To Offer Britton & Sinclair New Deals

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers is looking to get midfield duo Leon Britton and Scott Sinclair secured to longer contracts at the club.

The Irishman has explained that Britton returned to the Liberty Stadium last season to 'prove himself' and his contract reflected that. But now the 28 year-old, who is one of the most successful passers in European football, has more than proved himself in top flight. Therefore Rodgers wants to reward him with an improved and longer deal.

He also wants to do the same with Scott Sinclair and get the winger secured at the club.

Rodgers said:

'We are in discussions with Leon at the moment.

'When he came back to the club, he came back on a deal that was about him proving himself again and proving himself to me as a new manager.

'There's no doubt he has done that, and he is one we would like to tie down.

'We have not started anything major yet with Scotty, but I would also hope to get a new contract sorted out with him before the end of the season.

'He and I have had a chat and the chairman has spoken to his agent, so we will see how things go on that one.'


Rodgers added that a lot of the players have been secured under longer contracts, while Britton and Sinclair were the remaining duo with deals expiring within the next year or so.

'A lot of the others were secured last summer, and they are two we would like to add to the list of players who have committed to the club in the long term,'

'Leon has become a very important player for us, and part of the contract he signed when he came back was that if he played a certain number of games, his contract would be up for renewal.

'That's where we are at now with Leon and we want to get things sorted out with him.

'Scotty will also be going into the last year of his contract next year and that's not something we would like to run on for much longer.

'He has been brilliant for this club and he is someone we want to secure going forward.

'These things can take a wee bit of time to sort out, but the most important thing is that Scott's very happy here.'
