DIC not in fresh talks

DIC have confirmed they have no plans to buy Liverpool or any other Premier League club.

Dubai International Capital not planning new bid

Dubai International Capital (DIC) have confirmed they have no plans to buy Liverpool or any other Premier League club. DIC were keen to purchase Reds co-owner George Gillett's half of the Anfield outfit earlier this year after he admitted he was eager to sell his share, but business partner Tom Hicks broke off discussions. Premier League rivals Newcastle United have also been linked with the investment arm of Dubai Holdings which belongs to the Government of Dubai. Magpies owner Mike Ashley's revelation on Sunday that he intends to sell the Tyneside club has fuelled suggestions that DIC could be set to hold discussions with the billionaire. However, DIC have stated they are not planning a fresh bid for Liverpool nor are they in talks with any other side from England's top flight. The statement said: "Following inaccurate speculation regarding DIC and Liverpool FC, DIC can confirm that it is not involved in any negotiations to buy LFC and can confirm that it is not planning a fresh bid for LFC or any other football club. "Nor is DIC or any other Dubai-based party aware of any consortium or vehicle involved in a bid. "DIC has not mandated PCP to act for DIC or to act for them in any matter whatsoever. DIC would like to wish LFC and its fans a successful future."
