Feb 27 (Reuters) - The following corporate finance-related stories were reported by media on Wednesday:

* Russian oil producer Rosneft is expected to win unconditional European Union regulatory approval for its TNK-BP takeover bid, a source familiar with the matter said, taking it closer to completing the $55 billion deal.

* The Co-operative Bank's deal to buy more than 600 branches from Lloyds Banking Group is under threat as the Co-op faces a 1 billion pound capital hole, the Financial Times reported.

* Barclays Plc is expected to reveal next week that as many as 600 of its staff are paid more than 1 million pounds ($1.51 million), in the most detailed disclosure yet about how much its 140,000 employees take home each year, The Guardian reported.
