Liverpool sale latest: PL talk to Reds suitor

The Premier League have tonight confirmed that they have held talks with at least one of the parties interested in buying Liverpool Football Club.

Under strict new measures from the Premier League, aimed at avoiding another top flight team enter administration after Portsmouth’s demise, all new club owners must pass an owners and directors test.

The party the league have spoken to is thought to be that of Kenny Huang, the Chinese investor said to be the frontrunner in the race for purchasing the club.

Liverpool chairman Martin Broughton has explained that there are actually several suitors to buy the club from American tycoons George Gillett and Tom Hicks, with a deal hoping to be reached by the end of the month.

Huang is thought to be very keen on seeing the sale completed within the next few days in order to clear club debt problems and provide new manager Roy Hodgson with the funds necessary in strengthening the squad before the transfer window closes on August 31st.

Exciting, but uncertain times as ever at Anfield.
