Broughton: No Reds bids tabled

02 Jul 2010 - 07:44:47

Liverpool chairman Martin Broughton has confirmed that no bids have been tabled for the Premier League outfit since they were put on the market by owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett in May.

The Merseysiders, who announced Roy Hodgson as the club's new manager on Thursday, have been the subject of buy-out rumours recently, but British Airways chairman Broughton has admitted no offers have actually been made.

However, he has suggested a number of interested parties are lining up lucrative offers for the English and European giants.

Speaking to reporters, he said: "There have not been any offers at this stage.

"There haven't been any offers to turn down and I wouldn't have expected there to have been at this stage. There are a number of interested parties but there's no specific deadline on it.

"We are looking to the middle of July-ish for the first round of bids but that's not a final stage - that's a first entry through.

"We're hopeful - and I wouldn't put it any stronger than that - that a deal can be done by the end of the transfer season.

"That was always from the outset a hope rather than necessarily an expectation, because these things can take time. We are on course, pretty well, with where we would have expected to be."
