We are trying to get as many votes in as possible in our poll on whether Mike Ashley will be able to sell the club this year.
His initial aim was to sell the club before the end of the year, but it seems he got only one serious bidder in Amanda Staveley and her PCP Capital Partners group and their final bid was £250M cash up front.
The news is that Ashley would accept £300M cash up front, but the talk of a takeover should be in the background now until Newcastle are mathematically safe in the Premier League.
Mike Ashley – does he really want to sell the club?
But fans are not convinced Ashley will sell, and maybe this is just another (third) half-hearted attempt by the owner to sell the club.
But that’s not what’s being reported with Ashley presumably desperate to sell Newcastle and get out of club ownership.
That would be very wise.
Please vote if you haven’t already done so.
