Liverpool co-owner Hicks to give Benitez transfer control: Keane to go

Liverpool co-owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett are ready to sell striker Robbie Keane.

The Mirror says Hicks arrived at Anfield to tell Benitez that the valuation of transfer targets will no longer be the remit of chief exec Rick Parry. And the owners will sanction the sale of £20million misfit Robbie Keane.

Boss Benitez rejected a four-and-a-half-year contract extension because of his anger that Parry refused to pay Aston Villa £18million for Gareth Barry last summer. Instead, Parry agreed a £20million fee for Keane with Tottenham.
