BERLIN, Dec 13 (Reuters) - Wolfgang Schaeuble will remain finance minister in Angela Merkel's new coalition government with the Social Democrats (SPD), party sources said on Friday.

Merkel is on the verge of securing a third term as chancellor but is awaiting a green light from a poll of grassroots SPD members. Results of the referendum are expected on Saturday.

Sources also confirmed that SPD leader Sigmar Gabriel would lead a ministry responsible for the economy and energy policy, while fellow SPD member Frank-Walter Steinmeier would return as foreign minister, a post he held between 2005 and 2009.
