Liverpool co-owner Hicks angry with DIC

Tom Hicks is unimpressed by the alleged leaking of private letters about Liverpool sale talks with Dubai International Capital.

Hicks has been angered by leaked details of negotiations, and has blasted DIC's chief negotiator Amanda Staveley for an alleged involvement in the leak.

But a source close to the DIC negotiations said: "This letter has not been leaked by DIC or any of our negotiating team to the media.

"We do not expect any problems with the meetings next week, and we expect the deal to buy George Gillett's stake to go through."

Hicks claims that DIC are only one several possible investors, with the possibility of further American involvement.

But George Gillett wants to sell and will accept a deal next week which sees him getting an £80million profit on his stake, while selling one per cent to Hicks for £500,000.

The Hicks' family staged a show of strength at Anfield on Saturday when a large party of Americans - including members of Hicks' family - took centre stage seats in the directors' box for the 3-0 Barclays Premier League win over Newcastle.
