Swansea midfielder Leon Britton has expressed his disappointment that Paulo Sousa made his failure to sign a new deal public.
Swans boss Sousa revealed last week that Britton had yet to sign a contract extension that would make him one of the best paid players in the club's history.
Britton is out of contract in the summer and has been linked with a move to Wigan in a possible reunion with former Swansea chief Roberto Martinez.
The former West Ham man revealed his contract situation was unlikely to be resolved before the end of the season, but insists he remains committed to the cause.
"I am surprised and disappointed that the nature of my contract talks have been made public," Britton told the South Wales Echo.
"My advisor has been talking with the club since mid-September in what have been amicable and productive discussions.
"At the last round of talks it was agreed that all further discussions would be postponed until the end of the season so that I can focus on my performances for the club."
"I remain 100 per cent committed to Swansea City FC as my eight seasons here have proved," he declared.
"And I will continue to give 100 per cent in every game I play between now and the end of the season with the ultimate aim of getting the club to the Premiership.
"Any further discussion regarding my contract will be resumed at the end of the season as agreed."
