Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins says the club will move quickly to replace Brendan Rodgers after the Northern Irishman decided to take up the chance to manage Liverpool.

Rodgers has asked to leave Swansea so he can become Kenny Dalglish's successor, meaning Jenkins and the board face a tricky search to find a replacement. Swansea's attractive possession style of play won plenty of plaudits in their maiden Premier League campaign, and the first-team squad has been put together with that in mind.

"We shall now refocus and quickly start the process of finding his replacement to continue the great work Brendan has carried out at this football club," Jenkins said.
