Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers appears to be edging closer to filling Liverpool's managerial vacancy but reports he has agreed a three-year deal have been dismissed as premature.

The 39-year-old emerged on Tuesday as Fenway Sports Group's first choice to succeed Kenny Dalglish, having moved ahead of Wigan boss Roberto Martinez.

Reports began circulating late on Wednesday afternoon that a three-year deal had been agreed but sources at Liverpool told Press Association Sport this was "categorically untrue".
