Swansea City captain Leon Britton signs a new contract at the club, which includes the offer of a coaching position.

Swansea City captain Leon Britton has penned a new contract at the club, which includes the offer of a future coaching role.

The 34-year-old has put pen to paper on a one-year deal and a further 12 months will be triggered if he meets the appearance criteria.

Britton has been rewarded with a new contract after helping the Welsh outfit retain their Premier League status last season.

The midfielder will also be handed a coaching position within the club when he decides to retire from playing professionally.

"Leon has and still is a fantastic servant to this football club," club chairman Huw Jenkins told the club's official website. "He is a model pro and we are very proud to say he is representing Swansea City.

"He has made a tremendous contribution to this club, both on and off the pitch, over the last 15 years. I hope this new contract paves the way for Leon to remain with us for many more years to come."

Britton joined Swansea from Sheffield United in 2011.
