British negotiators were reported to have agreed outline rules with Ireland for their border after Brexit on Monday, sending the pound higher on hopes of a deal on European Union free trade as Prime Minister Theresa May arrived for crunch talks in Brussels.

According to the Irish Times this morning, Ireland and the United Kingdom have agreed a deal to ensure there will be no "Hard Border" between the Republic and Northern Ireland.

A leaked text from a document supposedly agreed between the United Kingdom and Irish Government appeared to show a deal had been struck as leaders scrambled to arrange celebratory press conferences to mark the occasion.

An EU official, who will be consulted by Mr Barnier and Mr Juncker ahead of Monday's lunch with the Prime Minister, added "it was more likely than unlikely" that an agreement on withdrawal issues will be reached.

May met with EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and will later speak with EU Council President Tusk amid hopes of progress on the divorce issues: Britain's exit bill, the Irish border and the rights of citizens. "Getting closer to sufficient progress", he said.

The UK wants Brussels to rule that sufficient progress has been made on the opening issues in order for talks on trade and a transition period to open in December, after a summit of leaders next week.

Mr Juncker insisted that a deal could still be reached this week, having described Mrs May as a "tough negotiator".

Tusk, canceled a trip to Jerusalem and Ramallah and hastily scheduled his own meeting with May for after lunch. She said negotiators from both sides would re-enage by the end of the week.

The EU and the United Kingdom are nearing agreement on some divorce terms, including the size of the bill that Britain must pay as it leaves and the rights of citizens affected by Brexit.

Brussels officials and diplomats sound moderately confident. And a lot of progress has been made. "There's more still to agree upon".

Ireland and the other European Union members are demanding the United Kingdom provide details of how customs checkpoints and other border obstacles can be avoided before negotiations can move on to their next phase of discussing post-Brexit relations like trade. But Ireland and the other EU nations are demanding to know how that will work if Britain is outside the EU's borderless single market and its tariff-free customs union, a looser trading bloc that includes non-EU states like Turkey.
