Swansea City could go straight to war with departing manager Brendan Rodgers. The Daily Mail says Rodgers will be officially announced as Kenny Dalglish's replacement within the next 24 hours after he informed Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins of his desire to move to Merseyside.

And one of the first acts Rodgers could perform is to sign Gylfi Sigurdsson, as the Iceland midfielder has not had a medical at Swansea and his £6.8million move from Hoffenheim has not been ratified.
