Britton edging closer to first-team return

4th November 2014

Leon Britton is another step closer to making his Swans return after the midfielder took part in full training today.
Britton is yet to figure this season after suffering a knee injury during the summer, but the 32-year-old is making big progress towards a first-team return.
Having taken part in a full session with Garry Monk's squad today, the midfielder is expected to be involved in partial first-team training for the remainder of the week before his full return during the international break.
Then Britton hopes to put his name forward for selection when the Swans visit Manchester City on Saturday, November 22.

Meanwhile, there's further good news surrounding fellow defenders Jordi Amat and Dwight Tiendalli.
The pair have returned to full training with the first team with Amat and Tiendalli overcoming knee and groin injuries to boost Monk's options at the back.
Amat has not featured since sustaining his injury in the 4-2 defeat at Chelsea in September while Tiendalli's previous appearance came back in August as the Swans beat Rotherham in the Capital One Cup.
Fellow defender Jazz Richards, meanwhile, is also on the recovery trail from a knee injury with the Wales international working his way towards taking part in first-team sessions.
