Sky Sports reveal what a ‘source’ has told them about Peter Kenyon

Peter Kenyon is a ‘man with no money wanting to buy a football club’ according to a source that has now been in touch with Sky Sports News – showing how important it will be for him to find serious financial backing if his takeover bid is to be successful.

Sky Sports’ latest piece on the takeover front claims that Ashley has asked any prospective buyers to ‘prove they have the funds to take the club forward’.

This is probably standard procedure when it comes to a potential sale, however this highlights the importance of Kenyon finding suitable and significant financial backing.

Whilst Ashley does not appear to have the club’s best interests at heart, it seems he will only sell to someone he feels has clear

Here’s a snippet from Kaveh Solhekol’s piece for Sky Sports today, revealing what a ‘source’ had told them about Kenyon:



One source told Sky Sports News that until Kenyon makes an offer, it is a case of “a man with no money wanting to buy a football club”.

Sky’s piece also confirmed that Ashley has ‘challenged’ potential buyers to ‘show him the money’ – with him asking for proof of funds and ambition before he’ll consider any bids.

Interestingly, Sky’s piece also suggests that the club is ‘unlikely’ to be sold for anything less than £300m:

“Newcastle owner Mike Ashley has challenged anyone wanting to buy the club to show him the money.

“Ashley and his representatives have never publicly named their price for the club, but it is unlikely to be sold for less than £300m.

“Sky Sports News understands that aside from purchasing the club, prospective buyers must also prove they have the funds to take the club forward.”

Let’s hope Kenyon can find significant financial backing. Like Amanda Staveley, he has nowhere near the financial clout to make this happen without serious backers.

  1. ”Sky Sports News understands that aside from purchasing the club, prospective buyers must also prove they have the funds to take the club forward.”
    he really is taking the P now
    what does he care? he hasn’t got the funds to take the club forward (well he has but he just won’t) so how can he demand others have?

  2. Kenyon could take the club forward better if he gave Benitez £2.50 and a pickled egg!!! It’s more than Ashley has ever given him!!

  3. Don’t show ashley the money he will take it and give nothing in return . He has done that to all nufc supporters for 10 year. The other bit is easy. Just tell him you have ambition it will so confuse him. And why should he ask what anyone wants to do to take nufc forward. Any thing is more fruitful than what he has done. He has just took the club back and stripped it of any worth. He spends nothing on the club or the team. He must be the penniless billionaire
