39 year old Brendan Rodgers, former Swansea boss, is set to be announced as the new LFC manager on a three year contract.
Despite an announcement from Swansea only yesterday that no approach from LFC had been forthcoming, it appears that the Swans were playing their cards closer to their chests than Wigan's Dave Whelan was.
It is two weeks since Liverpool sacked Kenny Dalglish and Fenway flew in to town yesterday to tie up the deal and arrange a compensation package with the Welsh club which is believed to be in the region of £4M.
Rodgers, who was born in Northern Ireland, has had managerial spells at Watford and Reading prior to Swansea, although he left Reading by mutual consent after a string of poor results.
Prior to his career in senior management he spent time at Chelsea as both youth team and reserve team boss
Swansea got through to the Premier League after winning the Championship play off last May. He guided Swansea to 11th in his first year managing in the Premier League.
