sbo Leon Britton will take the reigns for Swansea's game against Crystal Palace on Saturday following the sacking of Paul Clement.

Clement was dismissed on Wednesday just two days after a 3-1 defeat to Everton with the club 20th in the Premier League table and Britton - a veteran of over 500 appearances for the club - has been placed in temporary charge.

Although he has stepped in on an interim basis, Britton insisted he does not want the job long-term, saying: "I've been asked to help the club out, which is something I will always do.

"But in terms of the immediate future, I am not looking to be the full-time manager."sbo

Britton's opposing manager on Saturday Roy Hodgson has overseen an impressive upturn in results since taking over and admitted that the club may find it difficult to hang onto in-form Wilfried Zaha next month.

"I don't think that as a manager you can ever give guarantees on anything," he said.

"It's a great credit to the club and Will Zaha that if there are rumours circulating that there are so-called bigger clubs looking at him and maybe thinking of making a bid, we should be pleased about that because it means he's playing well."
