Amanda Staveley has revealed to an ITV journalist that she is still ‘committed’ to the Newcastle United takeover deal.
The Lowdown: Staveley call
Staveley, who is part of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) consortium looking to take over at St James’ Park, has recently spoken to Sky Sports referencing a letter that she wrote urging both the UK government and football regulators to ensure that the upcoming arbitration case against the Premier League is made public.
Is the KSA takeover of Newcastle over?
This follows a statement from the Tyneside club calling for the same thing, as the top flight are now under pressure to follow in their footsteps.
The Latest: Staveley ‘committed’
In a recent interview with ITV journalist Chris Conway, Staveley claimed that she remains ‘committed’ to the deal, adding that she thinks the investment is ‘really important’.
The businesswoman and head of PCP Capital Partners also touched upon the ‘thousands of letters’ that the consortium have received from members of the Toon Army, and reiterated that she does not want to let those supporters down.
The Verdict: Consortium not going away
Staveley’s battle cries in her last two interviews suggest that she and the consortium are certainly not going away with regards to the potential takeover at Newcastle.
With the arbitration hearing set to take place later this month, they will be more than confident of achieving a positive result, which in turn could speed up the takeover process for the club.
Nonetheless, all eyes will be on the forthcoming proceedings, which should paint a much clearer picture over the direction of where the takeover is heading.
