Liverpool co-owner Tom Hicks has revealed he held talks with Dubai International Capital - but only about the company becoming a "minor investor" in the club.

DIC rejected the opportunity and Hicks insists that is the end of the matter. Hicks, and fellow co-owner George Gillett, are now focusing on taking Liverpool forward after completing their £350 million refinancing package.

While Hicks said that there was never any intention to sell the club to DIC, he told Radio Five Live´s Sportsweek programme: "I did talk to them about a 10-15% participation but that was months ago."
