LONDON, Jan 14 (Reuters) - Oil major BP Plc BP.L, recovering from its Gulf of Mexico oil spill, said it is in talks with Russian state-controlled oil company Rosneft ROSN.MM about a possible deal.

“BP confirms that it is in discussions with Rosneft relating to a possible arrangement,” a spokesman said in an emailed statement.
