Reports had linked Britton with a move away from the Liberty over the summer after being told by boss Garry Monk his playing time would be limited this season. Britton faces competition from Jack Cork, Jonjo Shelvey, Ki Sung Yueng, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Matt Grimes for a starting spot in the Swans midfield.

The 32 year-old, who was linked with a move to the MLS, now says he's ready to stay and fight for his place:

It looks like I'll be staying here and I'm delighted with that. I've always said the first place I want to play is here at Swansea. Maybe things will change a bit and I can be involved more which would be great.

Just pulling on the shirt and seeing the Swans badge puts a big smile on my face.

– Leon Britton

Britton made his first appearance of the season on Saturday coming off the bench during the 2-0 home victory over Newcastle. And Britton says its was a chat he had with Garry Monk that helped him make up his mind. "I spoke to the manager two weeks ago and it was decided that the best thing for me was to stay here", the midfielder said.
