Liverpool face missing out on Swansea boss Rodgers

Liverpool are likely to miss out on Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers after the Welsh side moved closer to the permanent signing of midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, the Independent has reported.

It was claimed across the media yesterday that Rodgers was to discuss the vacancy at Anfield despite originally declining to be considered for the post but the newspaper insists such reports were always wide of the mark. Rodgers has recently been in the United States but the Independent reports the trip was planned long before an opening arose at Liverpool and that there was no contact between Rodgers and Fenway Sports Group, Liverpool’s owners.

The newspaper further claims that Swansea have demonstrated to Rodgers their commitment to remaining in the top flight and pushing further up the league table with the permanent signing of Sigurdsson, the Icelandic midfielder who spent the latter part of the season on loan at the Liberty Stadium. But with a fee in the region of £7m agreed for Sigurdsson at Rodgers’ urging, it appears unlikely Rodgers will replace Kenny Dalglish.
