Chinese Consortium takes a complete U-turn

A Chinese businessman reportedly planning to lead a summer takeover of Liverpool has issued a statement denying any interest in the club.

Kenneth Huang was understood to be heading a consortium who were in advanced negotations to end George Gillett and Tom Hicks' tumultuous three-year spell at Anfield.

Less than a fortnight ago the Americans officially put the club on the market and Huang had claimed that he expected a takeover to be completed by June.

However a statement released by the former Wall Street stockbroker has distanced himself from the quotes, claiming that he would not comment on any bid to seize control of the club, inkeeping with Reds chairman Martin Broughton's plan to conduct any deals out of the media spotlight.

"Mr Huang would like to clarify that he did not speak with the newspaper and did not make the statements attributed to him," said the statement.

"Mr Huang would not make any comment in relation to Liverpool FC."
