Brendan Rodgers will be officially presented as Liverpool manager on Friday morning after a compensation deal with Swansea for him and a number of backroom staff was finalised.

The 39-year-old will become the club's 20th manager in their 120-year history but their fourth in the last two years. He will bring with him assistant Colin Pascoe, performance analyst Chris Davies and head of sports science and medicine Glen Driscoll.

Swansea were looking for between £4million and £5million to compensate them for the loss of Rodgers, who only signed a new three-and-a-half-year contract in February. There was some additional negotiation by the Welsh club over recompense for the loss of their other staff.
