Lawyers have struck a deal to settle the four-year-old Rams relocation lawsuit for $790 million, sources with direct knowledge of the negotiations told theJoel Currier and Ben Fredrickson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Wednesday.

St. Louis and St. Louis County officials are expected to announce the settlement Wednesday morning. Lawyers were working to notify all NFL owners first.

The settlement does not include an expansion football team for St. Louis, a source said. It was not immediately clear how much of the settlement would be paid by Los Angeles Rams owner Stan Kroenke, who moved the Rams from St. Louis in 2016, and how much would be paid by the NFL.

Lawyers representing Kroenke and the NFL were in St. Louis on Tuesday for a mediation session with lawyers representing St. Louis, St. Louis County and the Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority, which owns the Dome at America's Center, to discuss settlement possibilities. Negotiations, held at a law firm office in Clayton, went into the night.

Mediating the deal was former St. Louis Circuit Judge Jack Garvey, who now works in civil practice at Carey Danis & Lowe in St. Louis.
