Britton says Allen “misses Swansea”

    Allen in action against former team-mate Britton

    Swansea City midfielder Leon Britton has said that his former team-mate Joe Allen misses the Welsh club.

    The Liverpool midfielder swapped Wales for Merseyside back in 2012 when he followed Brendan Rodgers to Anfield from the Liberty Stadium.

    But the Welsh international has never cemented a place in the side – either under Rodgers, who described him as “the Welsh Xavi”, or current boss Jurgen Klopp.

    Allen has put in some impressive performances since the German took over from Rodgers back in October, but he is currently out of action thanks to injury.

    He scored the winning penalty in the League Cup semi-final shootout win over Stoke City, but will miss Sunday’s final due to the injury.

    And Britton feels that he may be looking for a path back to Swansea after a difficult spell with the Reds.

    “He’s maybe had a bit of a tough time at Liverpool with some of the fans, but he’s played well recently.” he told Talksport.

    “He’s a very good player. I know he misses Swansea and home so it’ll be interesting to see what happens because I know his contract’s running out.” he added.

    Allen’s current deal at Liverpool expires in the Summer of 2017.
