Midfielder Leon Britton has signed a one-year extension with Swansea, the Premier League club have announced.

Britton, 33, first moved to Swansea in 2002 from West Ham and has made 514 appearances for the Welsh club, where he will now stay until 2018.

Signing the extension was a very easy decision, like most of my contracts at Swansea have been.

I spoke to the chairman (Huw Jenkins) and said, 'If you are happy to have me, let's just keep the same terms'.

I think it's one of the easiest contracts the club have ever drawn up.

If you include the loan deals when I first came, I have now signed 13 contracts at Swansea.

You never know, there might be a 14th - it's down to me to try to prove I can still do a job.

Starting line-ups: Swansea v Hull City

Swansea record signing injured during training session

Swansea's record signing Borja Baston will be prevented from making his debut against Hull on Saturday after being injured in training.

The £15.5m arrival from Atletico Madrid missed the opening-day 1-0 victory at Burnley last weekend as the game came only two days after he joined Swansea.

Borja, as he is known, was given extra time to build up his fitness ahead of playing some part at the Liberty Stadium this weekend.

But the 23-year-old will not be fit for Hull's Premier League visit after suffering a leg muscle injury.

"Borja's problem is a little one but he is not available," Swansea manager Francesco Guidolin said at his pre-match press conference.

"He has a muscular injury in the right leg. I hoped to have him in this period, but it is not possible.

"Perhaps I will have him on Tuesday at Peterborough (in the EFL Cup), but if it is not possible it is not possible."
