Britton extends Swansea deal
Leon Britton has signed a one-year contract extension at Swansea city, the club have announced.
Britton, 31, had two years left to run but has now committed himself to the Liberty Stadium club until 2017.
The midfielder has made 467 appearances for the Swans since signing for them in 2002, with his only break coming with a brief spell at Sheffield United.
He has played for Swansea in League Two and the Europa League and is now eyeing further success.
"To stay on at the club for an extra year on top of my current contract is something that I am delighted to do," Britton told the club's official website.
"From a personal point of view, the contract talks these days are so easy. I just wanted to get it done.
"To get to 500 appearances in all competitions would be a great achievement for me. That's my next personal target.
"But the important thing is that I help the club stay in the Premier League. We have had three years in the Premier League and I'd be delighted if we are still in it at the end of my new contract."
