A lot of Newcastle United fans have replied to a tweet from NUFC 360, which has relayed news from the Evening Chronicle regarding the proposed takeover of the Toon.

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

They claim that the deal for Amanda Staveley’s Saudi-backed consortium to take the Toon from Mike Ashley passed the ‘latest round’ of the Premier League’s required checks.

They say that the deal is now in the ‘final stages’, and as of yet, there have been ‘no hiccups’ and the process ‘remains on course’ for Ashley to be replaced as owner of the club.

However, the use of the term ‘round’ has confused these Toon fans, while some just seem sick of the whole thing.

Has this update confused you?

No

No

What do we think?

This seems like a positive update from the Evening Chronicle though we can see why using the term ‘round’ has confused these Toon fans.

However, according to reports in both The Sun and Forbes Middle East, the Premier League have approved the takeover.

The piece in The Sun claims that an official announcement will be made on the 1st of June – so we will just have to wait and see if that happens.
