Leon Britton hopes to stay on at Swansea City

24th December 2016

Leon Britton hopes his association with Swansea City will continue long after his playing career comes to an end. 
Britton is set to lead the Swans on Boxing Day against West Ham United, the club he left 14 years ago to move to Vetch Field on trial.
Having racked up more than 500 appearances, Britton is firmly established as one of the Swans' greatest ever servants.
And as he contemplates life after playing, the London-born star admits he would love to remain at the Liberty in a coaching role. 
"Whenever the time comes to finish playing, I would like to stay at the football club in some capacity," Britton tells the Boxing Day edition of Jack Magazine.
"I am from London originally, but this is the place I call home now. I know a lot of people here, my kids were born here. My wife is from here.
"I am very settled and the club means a lot to me, so hopefully I can stay here when I finish."
