An incredibly bold statement has been made in an ‘exclusive’ story in the Daily Star late last night, who claim that Amanda Staveley’s takeover from Mike Ashley at NUFC will be confirmed THIS WEEK!
Before anyone gets carried away, we’d be wise to remember that this is exactly what we Newcastle fans wants to hear right now, so there’s every chance this is a false story put out to sell papers – with the Daily Star also being one of the less trustworthy outlets!
Back to the story, the dubious looking exclusive in the The Star states the following:
“The investment company entered the process of due diligence at the club last month and wanted a deal finalised by Christmas, which matched the desires of current owner Mike Ashley.
“And Starsport now understands the takeover will be announced this week.
“The news will be welcomed by Newcastle fans, who have long sought-after a change in ownership.”

As exciting as it all sounds, this must be taken with a pinch of salt.
Noises behind the scenes have been quietly confident according to some well placed sources at The Chronicle – who’ve claimed recently that silence on the matter may turn out to be golden – however it seems a little far fetched to suddenly here a deal be completed in the coming week!?
We keep our fingers crossed, but won’t be pining our hopes on this one being true – it is the Daily Star after all!
