Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers to sign new deal with club
Rodgers said "there is the framework of a deal that is in place," and will be completed after Liverpool's home match against Newcastle. The extension will run through 2018, the AP reports citing British media reports.
Liverpool (25-6-6) trails Manchester City (26-6-5) by two points heading into the season finale and is guaranteed a spot in next year's UEFA Champions League. To have a realistic shot at winning the Premier League title, Liverpool must win and hope for a Manchester City defeat.
Rodgers, 41, is in his second season with Liverpool after two with Swansea City, one with Reading and one with Watford. He was Premier League Manager of the Month in March. SI WIRE: Villarreal fined $16K for banana incident involving fan
