(Newser) – It's long been rumored that the end is nigh for Tony Hayward, but the BBC now says the BP CEO is "negotiating an exit deal" that will be announced within 24 hours' time. The company continues its line that Hayward has the "full support" of the board and top execs, but sources tell the BBC that Gulf native Bob Dudley, who took over day-to-day operations in the Gulf in the wake of Hayward's bungling, will be named successor.
