Liverpool have called a 10am media conference for this morning to unveil new manager Brendan Rodgers.

Rodgers will be officially presented as Liverpool manager on Friday morning after a compensation deal with Swansea City for him and a number of backroom staff was finalised.

He will bring with him assistant Colin Pascoe, performance analyst Chris Davies and head of sports science and medicine Glen Driscoll.

Swansea were looking for between £4million and £5million to compensate them for the loss of Rodgers, who only signed a new three-and-a-half-year contract in February.

In addition there was some additional negotiation by the Welsh club over recompense for the loss of their other staff.
