Leon Britton

English midfielder Leon Britton's rise to prominence has been nothing short of remarkable. After beginning his career as an inconsistent winger who was surplus to requirements at West Ham, during two spells at Swansea the 30-year-old has grown to become one of the Premier League's most dynamic midfielders.

A superb passer of the ball, Britton's vision and ability have been absolutely vital to the Swans' fortunes since they committed to cultivating the aesthetically appealing playing style that has been the bedrock of their recent successes. 

Yet while the likes of Michu continue to receive vast amounts of praise, Britton remains an underrated talent outside of South Wales.
