Keith Harris, the chairman of City stockbroker Seymour Pierce and the man behind some of the biggest football deals in Britain, is believed to have settled his £300,000 claim with the Al Khorafi family, the Kuwaiti group trying to buy Liverpool Football Club.

Mr Harris filed a writ against the family at the London High Court last month, alleging that Rafed Khorafi failed to pay introduction and advisory fees to him after an introduction to Liverpool's owners, the Americans Tom Hicks and George Gillett. But City sources said that the Al Khorafi family have now "settled in part and agreed to settle in full". Harris is thought to have brokered a £7m success fee with the Al Khorafis should they win the club.
