More good news from the Evening Chronicle today, regarding Alan Shearer’s future at Newcastle United.
Alan Shearer – important meeting on Friday in London
Sources in London have confirmed to the Evening Chronicle today some big move on Ashley’s attempt to sell the club will come on Friday.
The Evening Chronicle is reporting today that Alan Shearer has been invited to a meeting, on Friday, with the current Newcastle owner and Derek Llambias, to bring him up to date with the sale situation.
This will be the first time that Shearer has been briefed by senior club officials for over three weeks, when talks on his future ended unresolved, and since that time, nothing much has happened and the club has not had a manager since the last day of the season.
It appears that Friday is the day when those consortia bidding for Newcastle, will show their hand and formally bid for the club, and we guess that after that, Keith Harris will recommend a buyer to Mike Ashley.
It could be significant, that the Newcastle club secretary Lee Charnley has already travelled down to London to keep a close check on progress on the selling front.
We may even see the new owner unveiled on Friday, and maybe Alan will then get a chance to meet with them, and talk about their plans for the future of Newcastle United.
We are being told that once the owners are in, they will appoint Alan as manager, but before that they will need to discuss some things on the road ahead for the club.
Sounds good to us, and let’s hope progress will continue to accelerate this week.
