Steve Howey set things alight on the takeover front when he was interviewed last night on BBC Newcastle’s radio show ‘Total Sport’.
He said his information from “a very good source” is the takeover (acquisition) deal is much further along than most people realize.
And Steve even said an announcement related to the takeover could be made before our next home game – against Manchester United next Wednesday night – KO time 8:00pm.
Here’s our piece on what Steve said last night that caused the frenzy.
Steve Howey – please don’t shoot the messenger
Steve was probably just a little bit alarmed at the frenzy he has caused in the Newcastle fan-base so has chosen to put out a Tweet clarifying the situation.
Regarding takeover talk which has gone into meltdown, I’m only repeating what I was told, I said I believe it when it happens, so if this goes tits up, don’t shoot the messenger

OK – so if the deal doesn’t happen and it was all fake news – we know who to blame.
But we really hope the former center-back is accurate!
