Liverpool board determined to sell to Boston Red Sox owners

12:33 pm on 14 October 2010

The board of English Premier league club Liverpool has vowed to go through with the club's sale to American company New England Sports Ventures, the owners of the Boston Red Sox.

Owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett have obtained a temporary restraining order from a Texas Court to stop the sale which was cleared by the London High Court.

A statement from the club's independent directors consider the restraining order unwarranted and damaging and will move as swiftly as possible to have it removed.
