The latest on the Newcastle takeover has emerged today from talkSPORT, and it all happened before the game with Arsenal last week, and the claims were made by former striker Dave Kitson.
39-year-old TalkSPORT pundit Kitson made the claim that Newcastle will be sold before the end of the season.
Let’s hope he has better luck than former center-back Steve Howey had with his sensational claim in late December.
At that time Howey said the club was close to being sold imminently,
But it wasn’t.
Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley
Kitson was speaking as part of TalkSPORT’s international commentary team before last Monday’s match at Arsenal.
Here’s some of the things Kitson said as reported via the Chronicle today:
“Well it’s funny – I can let you in on a little bit of an exclusive. Don’t ask me how I know but I do. This club will be sold before the end of the season.”
“It’s going to be between £300M and £400M. But it is going.”
“It’s gone. It’s being done as we speak.”
So in a week or so or more – when the club is not sold – talkSPORT should bring Steve Kitson back on and see what he says about his (failed) prediction.
The season ends four weeks this coming Sunday.
We have to wonder if pundits just make these things up or it’s the other people who make things up and then tell the pundits about them.
Any takeover talk has gone quiet at the moment as Mike Ashley presumably is trying to sign Rafa up to a new three-year deal.
Let’s hope he’s successful in doing that.
