The Mirror revealed at the weekend that Anfield's American owner was desperately searching for fresh investment in the club, to allow him to buy out current partner George Gillett.
Hicks has approached six potential investors with a proposal to form a fresh business alliance to run Liverpool.
Reports had suggested that Kuwaiti billionaire Nasser al Kharafi had been looking to buy the club, but these were wildly inaccurate, and as our report stated, Hicks is refusing to sell his stake.
Instead, he said at a banquet in his native Dallas on Sunday night: "Don't believe everything you read. I'm not selling. I'm bringing in a new partner to buy out my current partner."
Meanwhile, Sunday's fourth-round FA Cup tie between Liverpool and Everton drew a record-breaking television audience to Setanta. The 1-1 draw audience peaked at 1,462,000.
