The Newcastle Consortium Supporters Ltd (NCSL) have dropped a big takeover claim after Jamie Reuben ‘liked’ one of their latest Twitter posts.
Jamie is one half of the Reuben brothers who were part of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) group looking to take over at St. James’ Park with their £300m deal with Mike Ashley.
Is the KSA takeover of Newcastle over?
That bid has since been rejected by the Premier League, leading the NCSL to use their social media platform to try and get it back on track.
They did this by sharing a copy of the letter that they sent to the Prime Minister Boris Johnson asking for some more answers and some clarity as to why exactly the proposed takeover of the Tyneside club failed, and since then, the NCSL have tweeted that Reuben had ‘liked’ their post, adding:
“We can’t wait until these people are installed into our club when the takeover completes!”
Can the Newcastle takeover be revived?
It is a pretty big statement for the NCSL to make as they seem confident that the takeover in the North East will eventually be completed, as there are still a few issues that need to be sorted out in order for that to happen.
An arbitration hearing between the Magpies and the Premier League is likely to be needed in front of a judge in order to settle their legal disputes, while the KSA summit in just a couple of days may sort out the political disputes between the Saudis and their Gulf neighbours in Qatar.
