Reliable North-East reporter reveals Mike Ashley’s new takeover demands for any interested parties

According to Craig  Hope – a trusted North-East correspondent for the Mail – Mike Ashley will only now sit down and listen to interested parties if they are willing to make a deposit of cash to prove they are serious and able to buy NUFC.

This comes after Mike Ashley withdrew himself from a potential deal with Amanda Staveley and PCP Partners, with the NUFC owners claiming that talks had become ‘exhausting, frustrating and a complete waste of time’ in a statement from his camp to Sky Sports.

It now appears that Ashley is unwilling to risk ‘wasting his time’ again, with the Mail’s Craig Hope revealing that he will only discuss a potential takeover with new interested parties if they are willing and able to deposit cash to prove they are serious about taking over at NUFC.

Here’s what the North-East correspondent had to say on the matter last night:

An odd request from Ashley in light of recent events on the takeover front.

Here’s the response to Craig’s tweet, including an interesting discussion betweenn him, True Faith’s Michael Martin and the North-East’s correspondent for the Times, George Caulkin:

    Why do people still not realize Ashley has no intention of ever selling the club yet .where would he get free premiership advertising for his company and also his ego is being fulfilled. He is in the papers nearly everyday who would be bothered with him if he just owned sports direct.
