Kit Symons has rejoined national team manager Chris Coleman's coaching staff, the Football Association of Wales has announced.

Symons' return was expected following Paul Trollope's departure to focus on his head coach duties at Sky Bet Championship club Cardiff.

The 45-year-old former defender left the Wales set-up in the summer of 2015 after being appointed Fulham boss.

But Symons was sacked by Fulham last November after a disappointing run of results and has been out of work since.

Tony Roberts also joins the Wales staff as goalkeeping coach following the country's march to the semi-finals of Euro 2016.

The Swansea goalkeeping coach replaces Martyn Margetson, who has joined England's backroom staff under Sam Allardyce.

Symons and Roberts will begin their work with Wales when the players meet on camp next week to prepare for their first World Cup qualifier against Moldova at Cardiff City Stadium on Monday, 5 September

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.
