Liam Kennedy has dropped a claim on the proposed £300m takeover of Newcastle United by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) group.
The football journalist tweeted out his latest piece for The Shields Gazette with the caption ‘Now this is interesting’, as he wrote about how Nick De Marco QC tweeted about having a meeting with the St. James’ Park faithful and joining the team at the Emirates Stadium to watch their FA Cup tie versus Arsenal, in which they eventually lost 2-0 after extra-time.
Is the KSA takeover of Newcastle over?
Kennedy added, in his article, that movement is expected in the Tyneside club’s arbitration case against the Premier League, a cast in which De Marco has been instrumental in trying to get sorted over the next few weeks or so.
Can De Marco be instrumental in the Newcastle takeover?
De Marco has a good track record and overall reputation among sports lawyers, exemplified by him helping Sheffield Wednesday win their legal case, as he was reportedly instrumental in getting their points deduction in the EFL Championship reduced from 12 points to just six, and therefore giving the Owls a much better chance of surviving in the EFL Championship.
He has even been branded as ‘the Lionel Messi of sport law’, which should give fans of the Magpies hope if he is to represent the Toon in the arbitration hearing against the top flight.
