Newcastle fans could finally get their wish of being rid of owner Mike Ashley after 14 years of the Sports Direct tycoon owning the club, as several outlets have claimed that PCP Capital Partners could finally be handed the keys to the club later today.
The key breakthroughs in this prolonged takeover saga appear to be that broadcaster Bein Sports and Saudi Arabia have come to an agreement to show the channel in the country, while The Telegraph has claimed that the Premier League is now satisfied the Saudi state will not be a board member and have influence over the running of Newcastle.
This has led to Downie reporting that all parties are ‘working around the clock’ to get this deal pushed through.
What have these Newcastle fans been saying?
“Actually crying can’t believe it never thought it would ever happen this isn’t about the money this is about finally having belief again in my great club”
“I can’t wait, I’m excited”
“am like a bairn on christmas morning”
“Music to my ears”
“It’s actually happening isn’t it? Genuinely might cry. Finally no more Mike Ashley. Finally get our club back. Buzzing.”
“7th October 2021 is Hopefully the day we finally get our club back. Emotional is an understatement!”
After a very long and drawn-out saga that saw Mike Ashley originally accept the bid from the consortium over 12 months ago, there appears to be light at the end of the tunnel for Newcastle fans, with claims suggesting that an announcement is imminent.
Reports have claimed that the new owners have already set some plans in motion, with the likes of Steve Bruce and Lee Charnley likely to be relieved of their duties at the club when Ashley does hand over the keys to the Magpies.
