Swansea have confirmed that Brendan Rodgers has told the club he wants to leave to become the new manager of Liverpool.
The 39-year-old Northern Irishman rejected an initial approach from Fenway Sports Group (FSG) due to the large number of candidates reportedly being considered for the role.
But FSG, who had already held talks with Wigan boss Roberto Martinez, made a renewed approach to Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins on Tuesday night, with Rodgers on this occasion keen to hold discussions with Anfield chiefs.
