Liverpool owner, John Henry insists the Premier League club is not for sale but says talks are ongoing about external investment.
Fenway Sports Group, of which Henry is a founder and principal owner, has said they were interested in investment in November following a report that claimed they were inviting offers to buy the club.
But rumours have surfaced that there was an openness to a full takeover with reported interest from Middle East and Henry has now clarified his own intention to keep hold of Liverpool, which FSG have owned since a £300m purchase in 2010.

Speaking to the Boston Sports Journal, Henry said:
“Yes. I know there has been a lot of conversation and quotes about LFC (Liverpool Football Club), but I keep to the facts: we merely formalized an ongoing process.
“Will we be in England forever? No. Are we selling LFC? No. Are talking with investors about LFC? Yes. Will something happen there? I believe so, but it won’t be a sale. Have we sold anything in the past 20+ years?”
