Rodgers optimistic on new contract


Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers could agree fresh contract terms with the Barclays Premier League newcomers by the end of this month.

Any new arrangement is likely to be the Northern Irishman's first long-term Liberty Stadium deal since he arrived at Swansea.

He spoke with Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins on Wednesday, and the signs are promising that Rodgers - one of the most coveted young managers in British football - will continue next season and beyond, with the manager saying on Thursday: "It should be fairly straightforward."
