Rodgers is weighing up an improved offer for the Wales international after his opening £8m bid was rejected in what now appears a straight battle between Liverpool and Spurs for the left-back.

Swansea are understood to have agreed a deal in principle with Spurs for the player, but Davies is aware of Liverpool's interest, and would welcome the opportunity to speak with Rodgers if they match the Spurs bid.

Swansea are happy to sell Davies to Spurs as they believe it could assist in their bid to re-sign midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, but Liverpool's growing interest has complicated matters.

The Reds were beaten 2-1 by Brondy in a friendly last night. After a superb 20-yard effort from Christian Norgaard gave the hosts the lead in the 23rd minute, Kristoffer Peterson equalised from close range, only for Ferhan Hasani to score the winner for the Danish club in the first minute of stoppage time.
