Britton, who turns 34 next month, has made 514 appearances for the club, after first joining her on loan from West Ham in December 2002.

On the club's website Britton said signing the contract extension was " a very easy decision".

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.
