The href="/clubs/liverpool">Liverpool supporters trust group, Spirit of Shankly, is close to a deal that would ensure major decisions made by the owners are made by consulting the fans.
Reds supporters want to avoid any repeat of the Super League fiasco from last season, and have been in talks with the Fenway Sports Group about their role in future actions the club takes.
According to the Liverpool Echo, talks between FSG and Spirit of Shankly representatives have been very positive.
They spoke with Liverpool CEO Billy Hogan in May, and a deal could be close to completion.
"I think we are ahead of the curve," Joe Blott, Spirit of Shankly chairman told the ECHO.
"We met with Liverpool soon after the Super League plans and there has been some genuine contrition and a desire to find a workable model that would allow for greater supporter representation.
"We've not called it a 'golden share' or a veto, we've referred to it as 'consent', and it is something that will be written into the articles of association at the football club and would mean on issues such as joining a breakaway league or leaving Anfield, we as a supporters trust would have to provide consent for such a move.
"It would be something that would be written into the articles of association which means that whether it was the current owners or new owners in the future, that would remain binding. It would be part of the transfer of undertakings.
"We have had many discussions with Liverpool and the owners, and to be fair it is the owners who have driven this forward to find a resolution, and it is a proposal that we believe is a good one for both club and fans and one that we would recommend to our members for approval when we convene for our AGM this weekend."
