Britton is dealing with a groin injury and will likely have a late fitness test ahead of Sunday's match against Southampton, Express reports.

Britton has been relegated to the sidelines since Jan. 10, although he's only made seven total appearances for Swansea this season. The 32-year-old started in all but one of those seven matches, so there's a real possibility that the midfielder moves directly into the starting XI when he eventually return to health.
