Newcastle United: Liam Kennedy drops insight from takeover sources

Newcastle United: Liam Kennedy drops insight from takeover sources -Newcastle United News

Liam Kennedy has dropped some worrying insight from Newcastle United takeover sources.

The Lowdown: Delays

According to The Chronicle, the Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) claim over the stalled takeover deal between Mike Ashley and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) group has now been delayed until September.

Are the Premier League to blame for the Newcastle takeover collapse?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This follows the delay of the separate arbitration case filed by the St. James’ Park faithful against the Premier League over their decision-making process with regards to the failed bid, which is now not due to take place until early next year.

The Latest: Takeover insight

Writing in his latest piece for Newcastle World, Kennedy has shared that the proposed takeover in the North East by the KSA consortium is now ‘hanging by a thread’, according to sources.

Only the biggest Newcastle fan will get 100% on this pub quiz... Against which team did Kieron Dyer and Lee Bowyer famously fight each other?

It is thought that the recent legal delays have potentially further strained relationships, and the parties involved in the consortium are said to be shocked at the news that the arbitration hearing has been delayed until early 2022.

The Verdict: Worrying

It is certainly worrying to hear that the proposed takeover could well be on the cusp of collapse, especially given the constant delays that the consortium have had to face.

They have had to be very patient with the top flight up until this point, and the cases should give a much clearer picture over the direction of where the deal is heading.

Still, one can understand if their patience is slowly dying out, and so the North East club need to make sure that there are no further delays to both cases and that they can be finalised swiftly.
