With many Newcastle United fans here in the Transfer Tavern worried about the fate of the club’s future, some potentially huge news has emerged. Indeed, it’s been a long wait, but comments on Twitter have emerged from a top journalist.
Martin Hardy of the Independent took to social media this lunchtime to reveal there would soon be a story from the outlet on the possibility of an improved offer from Amanda Staveley for the club. Her first offer is understood to have been snubbed by Mike Ashley, though the two were recently spotted together in a London curry house.

Rafa Benitez’s side have struggled in the Premier League and are winless in seven, so our punters clad in black and white are eager for some good news. Considering Ashley’s past when it comes to spending money, the Geordie contingent who frequent our four walls in their droves hope a takeover can be sorted out ASAP, ahead of the January window.
This one promises to run and run.
