Plenty of Newcastle United fans have reacted to the news that Mike Ashley’s private plane has returned to the United Kingdom, as per ChronicleLive.
At this minute, it is yet to be confirmed whether the CEO of Sports Direct was on board as his jet has also been previously used by members of family and business associates. The plane landed in Luton after a flight from the United States.
The 55-year old has been in Miami throughout the global pandemic that has affected the footballing world, but staff at the Tyneside club have had no guidance on takeover talk apart from an assurance that they will be the first to know when the deal has gone through.
Those close to the deal feel that news will emerge at the end of April with the Premier League currently going through the paperwork and processing an owner’s and director’s test.
However, sources on the Magpies owner’s side insist that exclusivity on the deal for a Middle East consortium runs until mid-May.
These members of the Toon faithful reacted to the news on Twitter:
Back to sign all the papers 🤞🤞🤞🤞🤞

He will be allowed to travel for work if necessary. I would think this may be necessary travel.
