It was 15 years ago today that Leon Britton first became a Swansea City player.

The man who would go on to become one of the Swans’ all-time greats signed on a month’s loan from West Ham United after a successful trial.

A decade and a half later, he has racked up more than 530 Swans appearances and helped the club to three promotions as well as a first ever major trophy.

In the interview you can watch here, Britton remembers making the move to Wales – and explains how he is still going strong having taken up a new role as the Swans’ player-assistant coach.
