Liverpool confident sale will be agreed soon

Liverpool managing director Christian Purslow claims there are a number of interested parties currently looking at the club's accounts. Despite the likes of Chinese businessman Kenny Huang and Canadian-based investor Yahya Kirdi failing to come up with offers despite high-profile media campaigns last month, Liverpool's managing director said there were several other groups interested.

"There are a small number of potentially-interested parties working seriously and privately, doing due diligence, looking at the business in detail from a financial and legal standpoint," said Purslow.

"My hope is that one of those steps forward with a proposal to buy the club which is attractive to the board and which would be good for the club.

"Do I know whether any of those parties are going to get over the finishing line? No. Can I make someone write a cheque? No.

"The single, most important, aspect of the possible sale of the club is to make sure that if we're going to sell the club we get the sale right. The only thing worse than no sale is the wrong sale.

"I will not make the mistake of sanctioning any transaction that puts the club in a worse position. I know the questions to ask."
