Swansea City stalwart Leon Britton has confirmed there has been interest from Major League Soccer teams.

But the midfielder, 32, who has not travelled with the first team for their pre-season camp in Germany, says there have been no firm offers from across the Atlantic or on the domestic front.

"There has been dialogue with a few people in America but there have been no offers at the moment," he said.

"Football is football, things can change so quickly."

Britton played an hour for Swansea's Under-21 side on Wednesday, captaining the side as they drew 2-2 in a friendly with Conference side Wrexham.

"I wanted to stay behind because speaking to the manager [Garry Monk] it looked like I wasn't going to play in Germany unless there were injuries," he added.

"So I asked if I could remain behind to get some game time, because last pre-season was cut short by injury and I didn't want to not play again if I could help it.

"Something could happen in Germany and all of a sudden it changes overnight."
