Swansea playmaker Britton has no West Ham grudge

Swansea City midfielder Leon Britton is looking forward to facing West Ham United.

The Swansea star became football's most expensive 16-year-old when West Ham paid Arsenal £400,000 for him in 1998. But he never played a single first-team game at Upton Park.

Britton has never held a grudge against the Hammers for releasing him.

"They paid a bit of money for me, but in the end, I wasn't good enough," he said.
