Midfielder Leon Britton has committed his future to Swansea City after signing a new three-and-a-half year contract at the Liberty Stadium.

Britton has spent almost his entire career with Swansea City and has had little trouble in adapting to life in the Premier League over the last two seasons after helping the club rise from League Two to the top flight – playing in all four divisions along the way.

Manager Michael Laudrup has been impressed with Britton in the heart of midfield since taking over from Brendan Rodgers at the Liberty Stadium and has rewarded his playmaker with a new three-and-a-half year contract.

Britton, who began as a trainee at West Ham before joining Swansea City, had one year away from the Welsh club when joining Sheffield United on a free transfer in 2010. But after just 26 games and less than a season in Yorkshire he rejoined Swansea City.

Laudrup has offered new contract to the core of his Swansea City side with Michu, by far the bargain of the season with the £2million man scoring 16 times, Wayne Routledge, Ashley Williams, Ben Davies and Michel Vorm all signing new deals at the club in recent weeks.

Britton told Swansea’s official website: “I’m delighted. I know I’ve said it before, but I would love nothing more than to finish my career here.”
