Liverpool's complicated ownership issues took another twist today when Singapore businessman Peter Lim lodged an increased offer for the club.

The billionaire, whose original bid was overlooked in favour of the £300m offer from New England Sports Ventures (NESV), has returned with an improved package.



Royal Bank of Scotland, the club's major creditors, are currently in the High Court arguing over the validity of who has the authority to sell the club and if they are successful then the NESV deal will go through.



But Lim hopes to trump that with a £320m offer, with a further £40m to be spent on players.
