Prospective Liverpool owner John W Henry has reassured supporters that he too hopes the ownership saga is "sorted out soon" on the day the club is in the High Court.

Henry's New England Sports Ventures group is hoping to complete a £300million takeover at Anfield despite a dispute involving current owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett.

They are attempting to block the sale in the High Court on Tuesday in a move which could throw the club into administration with debts in the region of £230million.

Henry, who also owns the Boston Red Sox, is not in London to watch the proceedings first hand but is keeping abreast of the situation as it unfolds.

In the meantime he has used Twitter to convey a message of solidarity with supporters concerned by the latest move of unpopular American duo Hicks and Gillett.

"Everyone is hoping for the best," he said."There have been enough twists and turns. Hopefully all gets sorted out soon; LFC moves forward.

"It would be inappropriate and presumptuous at this time to respond to questions. In the interim, we're all rooting for the same thing."
