Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is tracking Wigan Athletic goalkeeper Lee Nicholls.

The People says Nicholls is seen as potential cover for Simon Mignolet, taking over the role currently held by Australian Brad Jones.

Novice Nicholls made a horror slip to gift Belgians Zulte Waregem a goal and turn the tie, but that has not ended the Anfield interest.

Rodgers will continue to monitor Nicholls, who is set to stay in the team against Derby County today.
