Chelsea had a bid of £1m for the England Under-21 goalkeeper Scott Carson rejected by Leeds United last night but the west London side expect to get the player before the end of the week, despite fresh opposition from Liverpool.

The offer of £500,000 up front, plus another £500,000 contingent on appearances, was turned down by the current Leeds board, but that was before they learned that the proposed bid by Sebastien Sainsbury to buy the club had broken down.

Chelsea's offer has been matched by Liverpool, who are also keen to sign the 19-year-old. Leeds are expected to ask both clubs to resubmit and to make a decision this weekend on Carson's future.
