The American owners of Liverpool have denied media reports Saturday that they might consider offers for the English Premier League club.

Fenway Sports Group, headed by Liverpool's principal owner John W Henry, purchased the club in October 2010 from previous US owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks.

With the five-times European champions having missed out once again on qualification for the Champions League last season having placed seventh in the Premier League, The Sun newspaper claimed Liverpool were

“unofficially” on the market with a price tag of £350million (USD 540million). But a club spokesperson said: “Fenway Sports Group has made its position clear, Liverpool Football Club is not for sale. There is no truth in this story.”

A spokesperson for Fenway Sports Group added: “Like so many rumours in the past about a sale of LIverpool Football Club, there is absolutely no truth in this. We have had no meetings with anyone about a sale.”
