Swansea insist a meeting between manager Brendan Rodgers and chairman Huw Jenkins had already been scheduled well before the Northern Irishman became the bookmakers' favourite for the Liverpool job.

The club have denied suggestions in some quarters that Rodgers cut short a trip to New York in order to return home to talk to the chairman after rumours began to surface of the Reds' renewed interest. Rodgers, along with his wife, was a guest of the Football Association of Wales for Sunday's friendly against Mexico at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

Press Association Sport understands Rodgers is speaking with Jenkins on Tuesday afternoon but that the meeting is not as a direct result of new speculation about the 39-year-old.
