Mehrdad Ghodoussi has dropped a subtle hint that he wants the proposed £300m takeover of Newcastle United to go through.
As shared by the Newcastle Consortium Supporters Ltd (NCSL) on their Twitter page, the husband of Amanda Staveley ‘liked’ the social media post relating to the letter that was sent by the influential group to Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
The NCSL sent the letter asking for some more answers and clarity as to why exactly the deal between Mike Ashley and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) consortium failed.
Ghodoussi also followed the page of the NCSL, which is aiming to raise its own profile with the ultimate goal of trying to get the bid back on track.
Are the Premier League to blame for the Newcastle takeover collapse?
What next for the Newcastle takeover?
It has not yet been revealed as to whether Mr. Johnson has replied, or even intends to reply, to the letter sent by the NCSL, but the PM could well provide some more transparency on the whole situation with regards to the prospective takeover at St. James’ Park.
The legal disputes between the Tyneside club and the Premier League may well have to be settled in a formal arbitration hearing in front of a judge, but a possible list of dates for that have not been set as of yet.
Nonetheless, it must be encouraging for several members of the Toon Army that Ghodoussi has subtly shown his support for the takeover by his latest activity on social media.
