Liverpool have informed Swansea they are ready to pay the £15million fee to trigger the release clause in Joe Allen's contract.

Reds manager Brendan Rodgers has long been a keen admirer of the 22-year-old, and the Welsh club have already rejected an offer worth £12.5million.

But former Swans boss Rodgers was always expected to return with an improved bid, and Press Association Sport understands that, while a formal offer has yet to be made, Liverpool have verbally confirmed their intention to stump up the money required.
