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

They claim that Mike Ashley is now ready for a conclusion to this long-running takeover saga.

It is now expected that the Premier League will give Amanda Staveley’s Saudi-backed consortium the green light to take Newcastle from Ashley’s hands.

Once the league approve the deal, funds would then be transferred to Ashley, and then it would be up to Newcastle to announce the takeover.

The Evening Chronicle reported on Thursday that the deal had passed the latest round of the Premier League’s checks, and now they feel the takeover will happen.

Do you also think it is a case of when, not if, now for this takeover?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, the quote that Newcastle fans have reacted to is not in the article, but is instead from a tweet from the Chronicle’s Mark Douglas, who also shared this report on Twitter.

Either way, though, many Toon fans are excited.

What do we think?

It seems that Mike Ashley’s time in charge of Newcastle is coming to an end, with a report in The Sun claiming that the deal will be announced on 1st June.
