The Bin Zayed Group have been talking to Capital Radio UAE an English national radio station that covers Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm al-Quwain.
The group says they will refuse to comment further on the Newcastle United acquisition, but as soon as there is a (worthwhile?) update they will issue another statement.
This could be good news because Ashley likes to operate in silent mode and under the radar screen, and maybe Sheikh Khaled has agreed to do this to help push through a deal through with the stubborn Newcastle owner.
Two paths for Newcastle to go in – under old owner or new owner?
But as usual, with so little news coming from the club, we really don’t know what’s happening behind the scenes.
We think this could be good news – we hope this is good news.
But we cannot be in this do-nothing state for much longer without Newcastle taking a hit in the transfer window and in their preparation for next season.
There’s so much work to do and it’s only three weeks tomorrow the players report back to training.
And the club has to be in China in mid-May to compete in the Premier League Asia Cup.
Wish somebody would tell us what really is going on at Newcastle.
