Rodgers rejects Liverpool approach

Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has turned down the opportunity to hold talks with Liverpool over the managerial vacancy at Anfield, ITV Wales understands.

The Swans boss had been linked with the job following the decision of the English club to sack manager Kenny Dalglish on Wednesday following a disappointing league season.

Rodgers though committed his future to the Swans earlier this season when he signed a new three year deal, seeing him through until 2015, and club sources suggest that he has no intention of going back on that deal yet.

After seeing the Swans through to an unlikely 11th place finish in their first season in the top flight the Northern Irishman has become one of the hottest managerial properties in the game and is widely tipped to take over a top job in the future.

For the time being though it appears that move will not be to Merseyside though as the club's owners Fenway Sports Group pursue talks with former Swans' boss Roberto Martinez.
