US ‘multi-billionaire’ responds to claims he will make big money move to buy Newcastle United..

Representatives of Arthur Blank have today denied claims that they are one of the groups preparing an offer to buy Newcastle – meaning the Atlanta United owner will NOT be replacing Mike Ashley on Tyneside anytime soon.

Following Ashley’s comments live on Sky News last night, several club reporters have shared their knowledge on just who is in ‘advanced talks’ over a deal to buy the club – and US billionaire Arthur Blank is one of the names that had been touted.

The 76-year-old – who is worth a whopping £5billion – was said to be one of the interested parties, however Blank’s representatives have since denied these claims this afternoon.

Steve Cannon – Arthur’s chief executive at the AMB group – has stated that there is ‘no merit’ to any reports suggesting he is one of the groups preparing a big-money bid to take the club off Mike Ashley’s hands. So, another one bites the dust.

A Turkish consortium and a ‘non US billionaire’ have been mentioned in a piece by the Telegraph’s usually reliable Luke Edwards today, so let’s hope something comes of that.

As ever when it comes to a potential takeover, we live in hope..not expectation.
