The Athletic reporter was then asked by a fan on Twitter when he last spoke to the buying side, and he confirmed that he had spoken to them on May 4th.

This new update has drawn the attention of these Newcastle fans.

Does this update from Caulkin excite you?





What do we think?

The deal for Mike Ashley to sell Newcastle United to Amanda Staveley’s Saudi-backed consortium is with the Premier League going through the required checks after a deposit was paid to Ashley.

This has been ongoing now for a few weeks, and though Caulkin insists that Staveley’s camp are positive about the deal, they have no timescale for when this could be announced, with Caulkin insisting that ‘it will take as long as it takes‘. (19:14)

It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the coming days.
