Lots of Newcastle United fans are loving the news about the prospective takeover in the North East which has been provided by Keith Downie.
As per Sky Sports, the journalist was speaking on a podcast with Steve Howey, as the two men discussed what exactly is going on at St. James’ Park.
However, it was one comment made by Downie in particular that certainly caught the eye of several members of the Toon faithful as it was relayed by NUFC 360 on their Twitter page.
The reporter claimed that the proposed deal is ‘at the final knockings’ in terms of whether it will go through or not. He also added that ‘a lot of spade work has been done’ in terms of making sure that everything can be finalised before the bid can be fully accepted.
Do you think the prospective takeover is close to completion?
Downie hinted that this has been a long process, and whilst some Magpies are becoming increasingly frustrated that it has not gone through, it seems as if these NUFC supporters at least loved the update:
"It's been with the PL for a number of weeks now [for an owners' and directors' test] but that can happen, it can take weeks, it can take months. With the current pandemic we've got I think that makes it even more difficult to work out when we'll have a resolution to this." #NUFC
