Peter Kenyon Sought MSD Partners As Investors Before GACP Sports

Peter Kenyon is reportedly in the midst of a £300m takeover attempt of Newcastle United. He has partnered with US-based GACP Sports in an effort to secure a deal with current owner Mike Ashley. Kenyon failed in an attempt earlier this year to purchase Newcastle as he could not secure financial backing.

In January, it was reported that Kenyon was desperate for investors as he tried to meet Ashley’s asking price of £350m. He may have now found what he was looking for in GACP Sports, but whether the two have what it takes to meet Ashley’s high demands is far from certain.

The Daily Mail are reporting that before Kenyon convinced GACP Sports to join him, he held talks with MSD Partners. This is the investment firm who are close to buying League One club Sunderland.

MSD Partners manage the capital of Dell computer’s Michael Dell. Dell, himself, is reportedly a passive investor in the MSD takeover of Sunderland.

However, Kenyon was unable to convince the group to back him and talks broke down. Kenyon later moved on to successfully form a partnership with GACP Sports.

The deal to takeover Sunderland is at an advanced stage with MSD reportedly close to finalizing a deal.

    Won’t be long after buying Sunderland that MSD end up taking LSD to fool themselves into thinking it was a good idea 😀

    You’re up early, another day of endless sun and high 30s here. I’ve had enough, I stay in with the aircon on.

    You can tell the long term expats here, we’re pasty white like an uncooked Greggs sausage roll.

    Before the egg wash.

    Have you tried their vegan ‘sausage’ rolls ?
    I’d defy anyone to tell the difference, and you’re doing your little bit for the planet.
    If we get a point today I’ll be more than chuffed.

    Ill stop you all there on the greggs talk, its got to be cornbeef pasty all the way.
    Was a stake bake lad but na cant beat a greggs cornbeef pasty.
    One thing i am disappointed in greggs is that they have changed the name of the cornbeef pasty.
    They now call it a bake.
    Its like when ashley changed the name of SJP.
    Change the name back greggs, dont do a mike.

    Cornbeef bakes we don’t get them here on the south coast
    Well not that I have seen and I now want one
    My mother in law makes a fab cornbeef pie

    Have a sneaky feeling perez will score to deny us the win
    1 1 draw for me

    No worries, Fabian Schar is enough to handle Perez single handedly.Still going for a toon win.won’t be an easy ride though,make no fuss about that.

    Greggs cheese and onion pasty (which has more potato in it that a bog of chips), followed by their corned beef pasty for me.

    Burnt me tongue many times on them over the years.

    I can’t see us winning today, hoping for a point and me being useless on predictions.

    Could they have been obliged to change the name as ‘pasty’ comes from the south west, in the same way that ‘champagne’ can only be used for the wine from the champagne region ?
    I don’t know.

    I don’t know how many posters have tried picking a starting eleven
    but I find trying to pick a side ( even with Shelvey missing ) is really
    difficult for todays game , which I guess , must be a good thing..

    That comment by Sunlun loving Louise Taylor is quite true
    Contrast that with a battling performance away to Spurs in 32 degrees

    The ups and downs of taking on a new squad I guess plus some players
    who had played in the PL for only a matter of weeks.

    We won’t fire on all cylinders until Ritchie and Lejeune are fully fit

    Eddie Howe expects “” the highest level from every single player, starting from the warm-up to the rondos, to the possession and passing drills, to the games – even finishing at the end. There is no messing about. You can joke once you’ve come back in and training is finished but once you’re on the pitch it is business. The one thing he demands of his players is workrate. If you give him that and all the other stuff doesn’t come off, he’ll back you all the way.””

    we’re not even firing on one cylinder, all we’re doing is spluttering along and we’re rapidly losing compression,

    ” won’t fire on all cylinders until Ritchie and Lejeune are fully fit”

    They will help stretch the blanket a bit further, but not handing over the ball and supplying more crosses looks a bit of a contradiction, at the moment. Hopefully the new forwards will all stay fit and bed in, but Bruce is struggling with his chummy approach.

    For whoever said earlier, Perez will be marked by Dummett. But it depends on how the richly priced Praet is positioned by Brenda.

    SKY SOURCES: Peter Kenyon is plotting a takeover of Newcastle United, that could end Mike Ashley’s 10-year long ownership.

    Joseph Dagrosa and David Neithardt incorporated this
    in spring 2018 – they clearly are thinking of a PL acquisition.
    Notice the company’s registered address is Oakwood Corporate Services Limited
    Altrincham near Manchester.
    Guess where Peter Kenyon lives ?

    This could have been going on longer than folk thought

    In my opinion, our number 7 IS our number 9 when fit. If he’s ok, he starts and plays 90′.
