Swansea City manager Garry Monk says Leon Britton deserved his one-year contract extension and that he is an 'example' to other squad players - as he hopes Ashley Williams follows in his footsteps.
Britton's recent contract extension means that his Liberty Stadium stay is extended until 2017, and Monk insisted that it wasn't a sentimental decision to offer the midfielder a new deal.
"The main thing with Leon`s contract is that he deserves it,"
"It`s not a sentimental thing or anything like that.
"The way he plays, the effort he puts in every day — he is an example to others in the squad.
"It`s massive for us to get Leon`s contract sorted out because he is such an important player.
Monk also told the Official Site that he hopes captain Ashley Williams signs a new contract. The defender has been strongly linked with a move to QPR, and more recently - Sunderland.
"And hopefully, Ash will follow suit, because he is another one who is vitally important to us going forward.
"These are players who represent all the values that are good about Swansea City.
"They have played a huge part in the success we`ve had and we want them here for the future as well.
"Younger players and players we bring into the club need to look at players like Ash and Leon and see how they work.
"They can help educate the players we bring in.
"They can show them what it means to play for Swansea City."
