Liverpool owners in talks with outside investor

The Mirror says George Gillett and Tom Hicks have held secret talks with millionaire John Miskelly after turning to the Northern Ireland tycoon to solve their financial crisis.

The Americans have gone to Miskelly after struggling to put together a £300m refinancing package, and also need to find a further £300m for their 'new Anfield' stadium project.

After failing to find a suitable refinancing package through a bank, Hicks and Gillett are investigating other options - including an outside partner or even selling their interest.

Ulsterman Miskelly has the funds to help but he would need support to put together a full consortium bid for the club.
