Another day, another rumour of a takeover at Newcastle.

According to the Daily Mail, a group of US investors are lining up a £300 million bid to buy Newcastle from Mike Ashley.

The report claims that the ‘seriously wealthy’ investors are aiming to nip ahead of Peter Kenyon, who was linked with a takeover bid last month.

However, any potential deal could hinge on Newcastle’s position in the Premier League, as they do not want to buy a club that will be playing Championship football next season.


We’ve heard it all before, sadly. While this might be a legitimate claim, it’s something you have to take with a pinch of salt due to what has come before.

Remember Amanda Staveley?

What do Newcastle fans make of the latest takeover claims?

As always, the Geordies have been very focal about the latest takeover ‘development’.

Unlike last year, there is no excitement from Newcastle fans. Despite talk of serious investment from whoever these wealthy investors are, the Toon Army won’t be sucked in again.

Until it is confirmed by the club that Mike Ashley has accepted a bid for Newcastle United, then fans will continue to be sceptical, and rightly so.
