Hicks: not selling Liverpool

Liverpool joint owner Tom Hicks has rejected claims that he is close to selling the club. There have been rumours that Dubai International Capital (DIC) are investigating the club's accounts with regard to a potential takeover in the future.

Hicks said: "Reports that I am about to sell my stake in the Liverpool Football Club, or to invite DIC to examine the club's books in preparation for such a sale - like other such reports planted in the UK press in recent weeks by parties with their own self-interested agenda - are absolutely and categorically false.

"The reality is that I am personally, professionally and financially committed to the club and its supporters and that I will continue to honour that commitment to the best of my ability now and in the future."
