Newcastle United: Fans slam takeover view from Mike Ashley

Newcastle United: Fans slam takeover view from Mike Ashley - Newcastle United

Lots of Newcastle United fans have slammed a takeover view from Mike Ashley after he has reportedly said that he is ‘growing increasingly annoyed’ that the £300m bid is not yet complete.

As per the Daily Mail, the CEO of Sports Direct expected a deal to be finalised ‘at least two weeks ago’. There continues to be the suggestion of other groups waiting in the background. Sources close to the takeover insist that they have had no communication from the Premier League as to when a decision is expected and they suspect Project Restart is also a cause of the slight delay.

However, they remain confident the deal will be signed off, although there is clearly opposition to the move and the top flight’s lawyers will now be considering the new documents (as per Daily Mail). If the bid is approved by the Premier League, it will end Ashley’s reign of 13 years as owner at St. James’ Park and the Saudi-led consortium will be allowed to move into the North East.
