Britney Spears' manager has confirmed she is close to signing a deal for a residency in Las Vegas.

The 'Piece of Me' singer's manager Larry Rudolph has revealed they are currently trying to choose between two casinos, one of which is part of Caesars Entertainment Group, and the deal will be finalised as soon as they decide.

He told 'Extra': 'We are in deep negotiations and I'd be shocked if it didn't happen. Hoping to have a deal done very soon.'

The 31-year-old former 'X Factor' USA judge - who recently ended her engagement to Jason Trawick - was also recently said to be in discussions with Planet Hollywood.

Britney hinted at a Las Vegas deal this week, replying to a recent tweet from her dog Hannah's Twitter account, which read, 'Mommy, are dogs allowed to gamble in Vegas? Gonna cash all my bones in for chips.' with a 'I don't think so honey #VivaLasVegas.'

However, friends aren't sure she will be able to cope in Las Vegas and believe she would be happier at home with her sons Sean Preston, seven, and Jayden James, six.

A source said: 'I'm not sure just how good an idea Vegas is for Britney right now. If she can't handle 'The X Factor' - how will she be able to perform five days a week in Vegas?

'She's a homebody, she loves her sons and has her daily routine. At this time, she may need to concentrate on her health and happiness - not rebuilding her career.'
