Everton chairman Bill Kenwright has dismissed reports of talks with a South African consortium about selling the club.

Kenwright was mystified by a report last weekend which claimed he was considering a takeover approach from an unnamed South African businessman - and revealed the situation regarding potential investment has not changed.

He told the Liverpool Echo: "I have said for years that I am constantly on the lookout for investment for Everton and that is the case," said Kenwright. "But I know absolutely nothing of this latest speculation."
