Paisley Gateway

A selection of the latest stories in the media involving Liverpool Football Club this Wednesday morning.

The big news surrounding Liverpool Football Club that emerged yesterday evening was that Brendan Rodgers is to remain in charge at the club from at least the start of the next season, after talks with members of Fenway Sports Group yesterday, including chairman Tom Werner.

The club's first signing of the summer - as has been reported heavily for the past few days - is likely to be James Milner on a free transfer from Manchester City, and more details surrounding his terms are starting to emerge.

The Liverpool Echo has said Milner is believed to have been offered in the region of £150,000 per week to swap the Etihad Stadium for Anfield. 

The Daily Telegraph reports that a deal for Milner, along with a move for Burnley forward Danny Ings, has been agreed in principle and both should join the club on July 1.

Liverpool are said to be one of the clubs on alert for Dynamo Kiev winger Andriy Yarmolenko after he told his club he wants to leave them, according to the London Evening Standard.

The Reds are likely to be facing competition from Tottenham if they are interested in making a move for the Ukrainian, and he is expected to command a fee in the region of £19 million.

Yarmolenko is quoted, saying: "The president knows that I want to leave, I have repeatedly spoken about this.

"I want to grow. It is hard, it is unclear where I will play next. There have been suggestions from good teams.

"I feel the strength and confidence to be able to play in one of the top championships. If I want to play enough in Europe, now is the time to move."
