Swansea agree deal for emotional return, keeping quiet out of respect for current coach

Swansea City have agreed a deal with Brendan Rodgers that will see him return to the club in the summer, according to the Daily Star.

The 43-year old was sacked by Liverpool back in October following a 1-1 draw with Everton and has been out of work ever since.

He has been linked with jobs at the likes of Celtic and Newcastle United, though the report claims a deal with the Swans has been agreed.

Chairman Huw Jenkins is said to have agreed a £90,000 a week deal with the Norther Irishmen, though is believed to be eager to keep it under wraps out of respect for current boss Francesco Guidolin.

The vastly experienced Italian coach was a shock replacement for the sacked Garry Monk late last year, though has stepped in and steered the club away from relegation.

He is reported to be of interest to Watford should they sack Quique Sanchez Flores.

Rodgers managed the Welsh outfit between 2010 and 2012, guiding them to promotion from the Championship and establishing the club as a comfortable Premier League outfit.
