Swansea City and Liverpool have finally agreed a compensation package to allow Brendan Rodgers to leave to take over at Anfield.
The 39 year-old's move to the Merseyside club was stalled today as it emerged that chairman Huw Jenkins was holding for more than the £5m release clause in his contract. What with Rodgers wanting to take his assistant Colin Pascoe, Performance Analyst Chris Davies and Head of Sports Science and Medicine Glen Driscoll with him, it's believed that Jenkins wanted more money, and it's believed that £7m will be paid.
Regarding this story, the Official Site read:
The club now starts its search for Brendan's successor. That involves looking at a number of chosen candidates who are well suited to provide Swansea City with continuity which we feel is paramount to our ongoing development as a Premier League club.
We hope to conclude this as soon as possible.
A number of different names have of course been mentioned on the internet, with bookies providing odds on a number of different managers, some of which are laughable to say the least - including former Cardiff City boss Dave Jones.
Blackpool's Ian Holloway was the early favourite but former assistant manager Graeme Jones is now the clear front-runner at 10/1 on, with some bookies even suspending betting on the Wigan man.
