Britton: Amazing Bony sale shows how far Swansea have come

Leon Britton admits he's in awe over how far Swansea City have come.

The midfielder was considering Wilfried Bony's massive move to Manchester City.

"The things we have achieved as a club has been amazing and we've done it the right way.

"When we first came up we broke our transfer record with Danny Graham arriving for £3.5m. We've gone on to break the record a few more times after buying Ki [Sung-Yueng] and Pablo [Hernandez], and then it was a big moment for us to spend £12m on Wilfried.

"If you said four years ago that we'd end up selling a player for nearly £30million then you'd get a few funny looks, to say the least."
