thumbnail Hello,

The Reds takeover talks appear to be back on after more interest is shown.

Liverpool takeover talks are back on, according to financial news source Bloomberg, with owners Tom Hicks and George Gillet ready to sell the club to a Kuwaiti investment group.

The Kuwaiti consortium that have already shown an interest in buying the club have revealed this week that both parties are willing to negotiate, meaning the long-awaited selling of the club could finally be going through.

It was thought earlier in the week that the deal had fallen through because Hicks and Gillet had raised their asking price, but apparently this problem has been overcome.

Further meetings are set to take place in a couple of weeks in the hope that a deal can be resolved and the ownership of Liverpool under the two Americans may come to an end.

The Kuwaiti group's spokesman, Abdulla Al-Sager told Bloomberg, "We are serious and things can change. Hicks and his team are nice people and unbelievably humble.

"We are huge supporters and we definitely want something to happen. We want to build the new stadium at Stanley Park and make the team do really well."

Hicks and Gillet bought the club in 2007 for a combined fee of £174 million, but have experienced problems in their ownership of the club, with the partnership becoming disjointed over time.

Indeed, whether or not the club was even up for sale in the first place was open to question, given the breakdown in relationship between the pair.
