LONDON (Reuters) – Rupert Murdoch’s Twenty-First Century Fox (FOXA.O) expects Sky’s (SKYB.L) independent directors to recommend Comcast’s (CMCSA.O) $39 billion bid, after which Fox will concede defeat in the battle for the British broadcaster, a source with knowledge of the matter told Reuters.

Fox will also review options for its 39 percent stake in Sky after Comcast outbid Murdoch’s group with a 17.28 pounds a share offer for the pay-television group, the source said.
