Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will not be sacked as the club’s manager as long as he agrees to work with a transfer committee this summer, the Daily Mirror reports.

Fenway Sports Group president Mike Gordon and club chairman Tom Werner are set to arrive on Merseyside on Tuesday, and will hold a meeting with Rodgers at some point over the next 24 hours to pick the bones of the club’s lacklustre campaign.

Rodgers’ position is not believed to be under any significant threat, despite a 6-1 shellacking at the hands of Stoke City on the final day. However, it is being said that he will be required to work alongside a transfer committee next season – something that the owners see as being non-negotiable.

Liverpool laid out £120m on new players last summer, but weren’t able to match the efforts of the previous campaign that saw them finish in second place behind Manchester City.

Rodgers has hoped that the club would adapt their philosophy in the transfer market to sign older players that he feels are closer to being a finish product as well as younger stars that will carry the team into the future.
