A lot of Newcastle United fans have replied to a tweet from Mark Douglas that includes a link to a story in the Chronicle.
This report has got these Toon fans talking with many unsure of this link.
If the takeover does happen would you want Fekir?
Another incredible #nufc link from reputable foreign media – this time it's Nabil Fekir.

Mark, feel these articles shouldn’t be put out until it’s sold. It will only make everything worse when it all doesn’t happen!

What do we think?
The 26-year-old moved to Real Betis in the summer of 2019 for £17.78m and he has gone to make 23 appearances and score seven goals as well as provide six assists this season.
Fekir nearly moved to Liverpool in the summer of 2018, but the move fell through because of concerns with his knee.
However, we agree with these Toon fans that it isn’t right to be talking about potential signings for Newcastle when there has been no official announcement on the takeover.
