Way suffered serious injuries last November when he was involved in a car accident, and was initially wheelchair bound, but began walking again a few months ago.
He made a shock appearance in Yeovil boss Terry Skiverton’s testimonial match last Saturday, but he fears that his playing days are behind him.
Way made an emotional return to the club ahead of the Bristol City match at the end of last season, and received a standing ovation from the Swans fans.
The 29 year old struggled with injuries throughout his time at the Liberty Stadium – his final Swans appearance coming in the 4-1 home win against Leyton Orient in 2008.
“Whatever happens, it is disappointing to have your career taken away through no fault of your own at the age of 29,” Way told the Western Morning News.
“That really hurts, but whatever happens I have to move on with my life and stay strong.
“If that was the last time I entered a playing field, then that was good enough for me.
“It was quite emotional, but no-one could have written the script better.
“To think of where I have come from, an electric wheelchair to walking on the pitch in the space of seven months – it has taken a lot of hard work and good attitude to get me there.”
Planet Swans would like to wish Darren the very best for the future.
