NESV Claim Binding Agreement With LFC

Liverpool are poised for new
American owners after John W
Henry claimed to have "a binding
agreement" with regard to the
sale of the club.
The battle for control at Anfield,
which follows an overwhelming
victory in the high court for
creditors Royal Bank of Scotland
and Liverpool against current
owners, Tom Hicks and George
Gillett, may be a short affair if
Henry's New England Sports
Ventures already have a signed
and sealed deal.
In a statement from NESV, Henry
maintains his £300m bid is
legally the only one on the table
that has credence.
"NESV welcomes today's High
Court judgment, which is a huge
step forward for Liverpool FC,"
said Henry. "NESV has a binding
agreement in place with the
board of Liverpool FC and we are
looking forward to concluding
the deal.
"We are ready to move quickly
and help create the stability and
certainty which the club needs at
this time. It is time to return the
focus to the club itself and
performances on the pitch."
Writing on his Twitter account,
Henry praised Martin Broughton,
the Liverpool chairman, the
managing director, Christian
Purslow and the commercial
director, Ian Ayre, for fighting
Hicks and Gillett over their
attempts to block the sale of the
Henry wrote: "Well done Martin,
Christian & Ian. Well done RBS.
Well done supporters!"
