Report – There Are Still No Red Flags With Newcastle Takeover

Despite a report today from The Times claiming that some Premier League clubs have raised concerns over Newcastle’s takeover, local journalists are still upbeat that everything is on track.

The Chronicle’s Lee Ryder is maintaining that there still has not been any red flags raised with the buyers. He also claims that sources in the Middle East have expressed confidence that this takeover will be approved.

This is what Lee Ryder writes in his report:

Chronicle Live understands that the thorough examination of the takeover approach by Amanda Staveley, the Reuben brothers and Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund is now in the final stages and there have been no hiccups.

The good news for United fans is that the process remains on course for the Magpies to have a new owner and there have been no red flags – despite talk of fresh opposition from other top-flight clubs and further complaints about the deal.

Mike Ashley, as one would expect, has refused to comment, but Steve Bruce was asked about the situation during a Sky Sports interview.

While Bruce didn’t say he had any direct knowledge, he certainly sounded like someone who thought a change in ownership was imminent.

The Chronicle has verified that Bruce and the players are still ‘in the dark’ as they await confirmation like the rest of us.
