Right-back DeAndre Yedlin has been talking to his former club, the Seattle Sounders, about Newcastle United.
And yes, we are global news these days with the takeover led by Amanda Staveley and 80% funded by the Saudi Arabia Wealth Fund near to getting final approval from the Premier League.
Once that happens, Newcastle fans will be able to both relax and celebrate the end of the Mike Ashley era.
It’s been an absolute disaster for the fans and for the club too, for 13 long and tedious years.
It became apparent after a year or two that all Ashley was interested in with Newcastle, was using St. James’ Park as a vehicle to advertise his Sports Direct company on a global scale.
He has never had ambitions for the club itself, other than to keep it in the Premier League, but that was only so he could continue to get the worldwide coverage of Sports Direct.
He seemingly couldn’t care less about the club.
DeAndre Yedlin (shown above) has participated in a live Instagram with the Seattle Sounders: this is some of what he has to say:
“Obviously with everything happening with the takeover, everybody is anxious about that, but I would say stay healthy, stay safe and whatever happens will happen.”
“Hopefully we will return soon and keep pushing.”
“The fans are very loyal, especially at away games. They always sell out. The away crowds are always sold out which is unbelievable.”
“As a player, sometimes it can be hard to play away. But if the away section is louder than the rest of the stadium it feels like home.”
“They are some of the best fans in the country.”
