Rodgers poised to sign Swans deal

Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has agreed in principle to a new three-year contract with the Premier League club and expects to put pen to paper in the coming days.

• Swans future is bright, but not orange

The Northern Irishman, 39, has operated on a one-year rolling contract since moving to the Liberty Stadium in the summer of 2010.

He guided the Welsh club to the top flight and has overseen an impressive start to life in the Premier League with the club lying 13th in table, leading chairman Huw Jenkins to look to tie the former Reading and Watford manager to a longer-term contract, and Rodgers revealed the deal to keep him in south Wales until 2015 is as good as done.

He said: ''I spoke with the chairman today and we have agreed everything in principle, we just need to draft up the paperwork and be presented with it over the weekend, then it will be signed and done and that will be fantastic.

''It was clear to me I wanted to be here. There was very little to discuss and I will be proud to move forward with the project. Ultimately my job is to make Swansea a sustainable Premier League club, that's the challenge.

''It looked a massive challenge to get promoted, but since then we have shown we can compete at this level, although we are riding high and playing well the objective is to stay in the league, that would be monumental and give the club more money to invest in the team.

''But the goal is firstly to make Swansea sustainable and you can obviously build from that.''
