Report: Red Sox owners to buy Liverpool Premier League team

A deal reportedly is in place for New England Sports Venture, parent company of the Boston Red Sox, to purchase the Liverpool soccer team.

According to a BBC report, the deal hinges on resolution of a legal dispute with Liverpool's American owners Tom Hicks, former owner of the Texas Rangers, and George Gillett. They've said they would resist the bid to sell to John Henry's company which, in addition to the Red Sox, also consists of New England Sports Network, Fenway Sports Group and Rousch Fenway Racing. The Premier League would have approve the deal.
