New England Sports Ventures (NESV) claim they have a binding agreement to buy Liverpool Football Club.
The American company, who own the Boston Red Sox baseball team, have seen a £300million takeover bid accepted by the Anfield board.
However, they have been waiting on the outcome of a High Court ruling before being able to proceed with their takeover plans.
An announcement on Wednesday that Liverpool can proceed with the sale of the club, has, in theory, opened the door to rival investors.
However, NESV claim to have come to a binding agreement and were waiting on the result of the courts case before concluding a deal.
“NESV welcomes today’s High Court judgment, which is a huge step forward for Liverpool FC,” said a statement from the Boston-based limited liability company.
“NESV has a binding agreement in place with the board of Liverpool FC and we are looking forward to concluding the deal.
“We are ready to move quickly and help create the stability and certainty which the club needs at this time. It is time to return the focus to the club itself and performances on the pitch.”
The statement comes in the wake of Singapore billionaire, Peter Lim’s, attempt to persuade the Anfield board to accept his offer. has cast that deal into doubt.
The Asian tycoon is promising to pay more for the club, while he has also offered £40million to be made available for new players when the transfer window opens in January.
Lim said in a statement: “I welcome the decision of the court.
“I hope that when the board is reconstituted tonight that it will not simply ratify a sale to NESV but will consider all the offers before them.
“I am asking the board to run a full and fair process that enables all of the offers to be considered on their merits before the future of the club is decided.
“I have delivered my offer to the board and believe that my ownership represents the best option for the future of the club and its supporters.”
