With news this morning that Mike Ashley is on the verge of completing a £90m takeover of retail chain House of Fraser, Alan Shearer has hit back in brilliant style on social media – asking ‘what position’ does this ‘House of Fraser’ play?!
Here’s the tweet posted from the Match of the Day pundit in response to the news in the last few moments.

After our MINUS £21m net spend over the summer, our failure to sign a much needed left-back (or No 10) on deadline day and our inability to spend over £16m on a single player yet again, this just shows where the money’s all gone.
We shouldn’t be surprised – the man has no interest in NUFC – however this is a real slap in the face, occurring just hours after the transfer deadline slammed shut at 5pm last night.
