Two sources familiar with the talks told Reuters late on Thursday that Lloyds would announce a fine next week in connection with a global scandal over the fixing of the London Interbank Offered Rate.

One source said the settlement, which will be the seventh joint UK and U.S. penalty in this inquiry, could be in the ballpark of 200 million to 300 million pounds.
