A lot of Newcastle United fans have responded to a post from NUFC 360, which includes a link to an article in the Daily Telegraph about the Toon’s proposed takeover.

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

The piece claims that the Premier League are ‘fully considering’ calls to stop the Toon’s Saudi-backed takeover.

The Daily Telegraph has seen a letter sent to Hatice Cengiz – the fiancé of murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The letter claims that the Premier League are ‘extremely sympathetic’ to Cengiz and that her concerns with the takeover are ‘being fully considered’.

This has drawn the attention of these Toon fans who are fuming that a supposedly confidential process has now been leaked to the media and that so many people want to stop this deal from happening.

Does this concern you?

No, just seems like clickbait

Richard Masters claimed in an interview with Sky Sports that the takeover process remains fully confidential.

Still, then somehow, this letter has emerged, and it seems that Cengiz’s concerns are going to be considered in the process of reviewing Newcastle’s takeover.

The Saudi state and Mohammed Bin Salman are accused of playing a role in Khashoggi’s murder, and this piece in the Telegraph suggests that these concerns will now be assessed.

However, Masters does say in the letter that he can’t provide any more detail, and he can’t meet with Cengiz, who had requested a meeting.

Despite this, though, these Toon fans are now bored of all the negativity and the whole takeover saga.

The deal for Amanda Staveley’s Saudi-backed takeover has been with the Premier League for a while now after a deposit was paid to Mike Ashley in April.

Here we are in June, and we are no further forward on this takeover with Masters confirming that there was no timescale for the deal.

However, this letter emerging might not help the hysteria on Tyneside, and it is clear that from some of the replies, many Toon fans have had enough of this whole saga.
