New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft says he won't be making a move to buy a Premier League club.

Kraft has come close to buying Liverpool in the past.

Speaking during a promotional tour of London ahead of his Patriots taking on Stan Kroenke's St. Louis Rams at Wembley Stadium on Sunday October 28, Kraft admitted to Sky News: "We came very close to a deal. I love the game of soccer and David Moores and I bonded.

"But, in the end, I want to be able to compete at the highest level. Just look at what's happened this year with Manchester City - they lose hundreds of millions of pounds but they win the championship. And then there are teams like Chelsea.

"I didn't want to be in a league where I can't compete. I don't want to be in a situation where people are coming in and throwing money at things."
