UPDATE: The Oakland mayor's office has confirmed that a framework deal has been reached that may keep the football team in Oakland.

Mayor Libby Schaaf said Tuesday morning that she will be meeting with representatives from the county and city council in closed session over the next few days to discuss the deal.

Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak says there is nothing to worry about.

ORIGINAL STORY

Sources say Raiders star Ronnie Lott is close to signing a deal that could keep the Raiders in Oakland, according to ABC 7 in San Francisco.

They say Lott could sign a deal with the city of Oakland and Alameda County to either sell or lease the current stadium. The group is hoping to negotiate a stadium deal and redevelop the land into a new sports complex.

However, Raiders owner Mark Davis remains committed to moving the team to Las Vegas. The Nevada legislature approved $750 million toward a stadium in October, which Gov. Brian Sandoval signed.

ABC 7 reports that NFL owner could vote on the Raiders' proposed move to Las Vegas in January.
