BIRMINGHAM, England (Reuters) – Britain’s former Brexit minister David Davis said he thought it was 80 – 90 percent likely that the government will strike an exit deal with the European Union, but warned that he expected talks to go down to the wire.

“I think that there will be a deal. I think it’s 80 – 90 percent likely there will be a deal,” Davis told Sky News. He said May’s current plan did not satisfy voters expectations of Brexit, and that the final deal would look more like a free-trade arrangement.
