Liverpool's two-week search for a new manager is set to be concluded, once owners Fenway Sports Group come up with acceptable compensation to take Brendan Rodgers from Swansea.
The 39-year-old was offered the job on Wednesday and his south Wales club have reluctantly allowed him to leave even though he only signed a new three-and-a-half-year deal in February.
However, the safety net of that contract means Swansea are likely to receive a pay-off of between £4million-£5million once terms are agreed on Thursday morning. Rodgers is expected to sign a three-year contract and be presented as the successor to Kenny Dalglish on Friday.
