Swansea plan Rodgers contract talks


Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins is to hold talks with manager Brendan Rodgers over a new long-term contract at the Liberty Stadium.

Former Watford and Reading manager Rodgers, who guided the club to promotion in his first season in charge, joined on a one-year rolling contract in the summer of 2010 and is still operating under those terms.

But with the highly-rated Northern Irishman having helped the Swans make a competitive start to their maiden Premier League campaign, Jenkins told the South Wales Evening Post: "We will be sitting down with Brendan to look at sorting out a longer-term deal over the next few months."
