Tottenham Hotspur will reportedly poach Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers as Harry Redknapp prepares to accept the England job next week.

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly ready to lure Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers to White Hart Lane as Harry Redknapp prepares to give England the green light.

The 65-year-old has been the overwhelming favourite to become the new Three Lions boss since Fabio Capello left his post in February.

It is believed that the 39-year-old coach is open to making the switch from Wales but Tottenham's hierarchy will not make a formal approach for the Northern Irishman until England's governing body begin discussions with Redknapp.
