Liverpool's chief executive Peter Moore insists that owners Fenway Sports Group (FSG) have no intention of selling the club and are committed to the Reds for the long-term.

Reports in the United States alleged that FSG founder John W Henry was considering bids for the club, which they bought eight years ago.

However, according to Sky Sports, a spokesman for the Reds categorically denied the claims from the New York Post earlier this month.

In addition, chief executive Moore dismissed the rumours, indicating that the owners are keen on meeting the club's ambitions by investing in new infrastructure and facilities to help improve the teams' performances.

Moore told Sky Sports: "The owners, since they took over the club as stewards, have invested £2m in capital investment, that's building things, investing in technology and investing in this new main stand.

"Investing as we are right now in Kirkby where we are building a brand new performance centre for our first time. For the first time ever we will have our first team and our academy together.

"That's a £50m investment right there. I think what we have is an ownership group that totally understands what it means to be in charge of this football club. That understands this city, understands the needs for its fans, they are in it for a very long term, there is no short-term thinking, no short-term investment in this club."

Moore also suggested that the owners have faith in the aspirations of manager Jürgen Klopp and sporting director Michael Edwards and aim to help the club return to former glory, while ensuring the sustainability of the club for years to come.

"They believe in what's going on under Jürgen Klopp on the pitch, what's going under Michael Edwards our sporting director.

"In the back rooms of Melwood, soon to be Kirkby, and hopefully they believe in what we are doing and what my team is doing in the business of football.

"That this to become a self-sustaining business model that can refresh itself every single year. In a nutshell, great owners, understanding owners, patient capital that is building for the future."
