A lot of Newcastle United fans have replied to a post from Luke Edwards as he provided his view on the proposed takeover of the Toon.

To kick things off, who is this man from the 2009/10 season?

Edwards claimed: “There has been no official or unofficial notification from [the] Premier League given to anyone currently involved in running/ownership of #NUFC that they’re going to green-light the #NUFCTakeover.”

He, therefore, believes that nothing has changed, but that the takeover remains ‘imminent’.

This has drawn the attention of these Toon fans.

Does this bother you?

No

No

Yes

Yes

What do we think?

Edwards’ claims are backed up by those of Daily Mail reporter Craig Hope’s, and while Sky Sports’ Pete Graves even replied in the tweets to support Edwards.

However, Edwards’ Telegraph colleague Jason Burt produced a piece on Friday claiming that the Premier League are likely to grant Amanda Staveley’s Saudi-backed consortium the green light.

This is also supported by a piece from Neil Custis in The Sun, who believes that the league have already approved the deal, and an official announcement will be made on 1st June.

Therefore, there are a lot of contrasting claims out there at the moment, but Graves did urge Toon fans to have patience, and we agree with him on this one.
