An American consortium led by Stephen Kaplan and Jason Levien took over in July, inheriting Guidolin as manager.

According to Press Association Sport though, a change of boss just weeks into the Premier League is not inevitable, despite Swansea being without a win.

Ryan Giggs and Gianfranco Zola have both been linked to the job, but after Saturday's loss to Manchester City Guidolin admitted he had not yet discussed his future at the club.

Francesco Guidolin was given a two-year contract with the Swans in May.

Giggs, who left his role as Manchester United assistant manager over the summer, ending a 29-year association with the club, last week said he had had no contact with Swansea.

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.
