Newcastle United: Mark Douglas makes fresh takeover claim involving buyers

Newcastle United: Mark Douglas makes fresh takeover claim involving buyers - Newcastle United News

Mark Douglas has made a fresh claim on the proposed takeover of Newcastle United as he posted a thread on his official Twitter page.

As per The Chronicle journalist, he believes that the big problem with the prospective £300m deal between Mike Ashley and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabian (KSA) group is the lack of transparency.

Will the Premier League approve the takeover of Newcastle?

Yes

Yes

No

No

He also called for patience on the final decision as he claims that the whole process should not be rushed under pressure.

Douglas also gave his own thoughts on the buying side, as he claimed that potentially having a dictator-like person in charge in the northeast “could be catastrophic”, but added that the would-be owners have indicated that this approach will not happen.

Which season did Longstaff make his debut for the Newcastle U18's?

He rounded off by iterating that nobody knows exactly what questions are being asked by the Premier League to the consortium and admitted that it is the most frustrating story that he has ever covered.

Indeed, the entire saga is becoming more and more frustrating for members of the Toon Army who have been waiting for four months now on the final decision by the Premier League.

It seems as if more questions are being asked, with little answers on a timescale of when an official announcement will eventually be made by England’s highest division.

Some Newcastle fans may be fearing that the bid will break down as the 2020/21 season fast approaches, with still no indication as to whether or not the Magpies will be taken over before the new term begins.

For now, they will be made to wait longer until more clarity is given by the league.
