John Henry Vows Not To Disappoint Liverpool Fans

Boston Red Sox owner John W Henry has pledged to fight Tom Hicks' "last desperate attempt" to hang on to Liverpool. Henry said his New England Sports Ventures (NESV) company has a binding agreement to buy Liverpool. His statement comes with Hicks looking likely to try to enlist Mill Financial - who already own George Gillett's 50% of the club - to pay the £280million debt to the Royal Bank of Scotland by today's deadline and thwart the takeover by NESV. NESV believe any such attempt by Hicks would have to be ratified by the Liverpool board and they would be prepared to return to the High Court to have their binding agreement upheld. Henry said on his Twitter account this morning: "We have a binding contract. Will fight Mill Hicks Gillett attempt to keep club today. Their last desperate attempt to entrench their regime." Time is running out for Hicks with a restraining order on the NESV takeover only in place until lunchtime today.
