As per the outlet, the Daily Telegraph writer does think that there is a concern about whether the proposed deal will indeed go through between the Saudi-led consortium and Mike Ashley at St. James’ Park.
Are you concerned about the takeover going through?
The journalist also thinks that there has been a problem with the Premier League owners’ and directors’ tests, and also raised the potential moral questions surrounding the bid, but added that it will be great news for the top flight if it goes through.
Indeed, Saudi Arabian crown prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), businesswoman Amanda Staveley and the billionaire Reuben brothers are hoping that England’s highest division eventually approve of their bid, and providing that they can pass the tests set out by the league, they will finally be able to move in.
These members of the Toon faithful are sceptical after hearing Edwards’ thoughts:
Yeahhh it's not gonna happen is it…

Luke has got a point here it’s been dragging on and on and theres has been no official word and all we are getting is different dates as people trying to get their foot through the door first with breaking news but the tests are confidential so how people know stuff beyond me

Let’s be clear. The Newcastle takeover bid would not pass any proper Fit and Proper Persons Test. Ashley May be a 101 things but to my knowledge he has not been cited by the UN and other international bodies for being complicit in murder. Yes, MURDER. FA. Hang your heads in shame
