Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has found himself at the centre of Liverpool's search for a successor to Kenny Dalglish after speculation linking him with the Anfield vacancy mounted.

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez had been the long-time front-runner but Rodgers' return from a short trip to New York sparked the rumour mill into life.

Press Association Sport understands an appointment at Anfield could be made by the weekend but as of Tuesday evening, Swansea insisted they had not received a second approach from the Reds for their manager.
