Swansea midfielder Leon Britton hopes to end his career with the club after signing a new three-year contract that will keep him at the Liberty Stadium until the summer of 2015.

Britton, 29, still had a year remaining on his existing deal, but manager Brendan Rodgers was keen to tie the playmaker to a longer contract after watching him turn in a string of fine performances in Swansea's maiden Barclays Premier League campaign.

Britton told the club's official website: "I'm pleased to complete the deal. It was an easy decision for me to make, although I still find it strange when I look back to the day I left for Sheffield United."
