A number of Newcastle United fans have reacted to a recent reveal from sports lawyer Nick De Marco, that his cousins have links to Newcastle.

De Marco is representing Newcastle and current owner Mike Ashley, and is hoping to resurrect a £300million takeover in the future according to the Shields Gazette.

It was well-publicised that a Saudi Arabian-backed consortium were interested in taking over the club, with a deal being agreed between them and Mike Ashley.

However, the move failed to materialise when the move was scrutinised by the Premier League’s owners’ and directors’ test and it is understood that PIF ran out of patience.

But De Marco is keen on getting a deal over the line in the future it is believed, and he has recently tweeted a link between himself and Newcastle involving the Mark Toney chain of ice cream parlours, which also involved wanting to visit them one day.

Plenty of Newcastle United supporters took to social media to react to this recent reveal by De Marco, and it’s safe to say that they were delighted to hear of his family links to the area.

Newcastle are currently sat 12th in the Premier League table, and will be hoping they can build on some impressive recent showings under the management of Steve Bruce.

The Magpies have won their last two matches, which included a 2-1 win over relegation-threatened West Brom on Saturday afternoon, as Dwight Gayle struck the winner eight minutes from time.

Steve Bruce’s side are set to return to action in midweek, when they take on Leeds United at Elland Road, in what is likely to be a closely-fought battle between the two teams.
