Swansea’s Long-Serving Star on Brink of Liberty Exit?


Swansea City’s long-serving midfield star Leon Britton has not travelled with the squad to Germany.


Britton reportedly asked Garry Monk if he could stay at home after the Swansea boss told the 32-year-old that game time will be limited in Grassau – Britton is now expected to link up with the U21’s who face Wrexham in a friendly on Wednesday.

The midfielders’ absence from the pre-season tour has almost certainly confirmed he will be making the move away from the Liberty Stadium this summer. Britton, who first signed for the Swans way back in 2003, has gone onto play over 350 league games for the Swans spanning across all four divisions.

Despite a short unsuccessful spell with Sheffield United in 2010, Britton has been one of the most important players for the Swans over the last decade or so, and has turned himself into a real fans’ hero.

The former West Ham United trainee has been heavily linked with a move to MLS during the summer, and after this latest development, it looks as though Britton’s long tenure in South Wales is finally coming to an end.
