Newcastle fans are starting to get sick and tired of the continued talks of a club takeover. The fans have been given hopes just have them dashed time after time, and they’re done with it. However, The Chronicle has taken to print with yet more takeover news, as Amanda Staveley has claimed she has no issues with Ashley and could still buy the club.

Mike Ashley has come out in the past and publicly claimed that he wants to sell Newcastle United, however, it doesn’t seem to matter who’s interested in buying them, no agreement is ever reached. The frustrations over the ownership of the club is something that has plagued the Magpies for years, and considering how many failed takeovers there have been the fans are sceptical over the whole situation.
Staveley was the name on the fans lips last season when the takeover stories came about in December 2017, however, it looked like a potential sale of United was dead and buried just weeks later. These recent comments from the businesswoman, who’s backed by PCP Capital Partners, could breathe potential new life into a deal as she’s claimed that she would be keen to take the club off of his hands.

The Magpies have had enough of the takeover talk, they know that their club won’t be getting sold anytime soon and have given up on the prospect of having a new owner.
