Reporter who leaked £350m takeover ‘exclusive’ responds to fans on Twitter – He’s adamant

A week after his big story in The Sun claiming Sheikh Khaled looked set to seal a £350m takeover, Justin Allen has responded to Newcastle fans on Twitter asking just what on earth’s going on.

Scepticism is to be expected. We’re over a week on from his big breaking news from the Sunday before last, yet the situation seems no clearer – despite two statements from the BZG.

That said, Allen INSISTS that what he reported is true, telling curious Newcastle fans that Ashley has agreed to sell the club for £350m, claiming contracts have been signed and paperwork sent to the Premier League.

See his Twitter responses below, with Newcastle fans demanding answers over a week on from his big takeover reveal:

So, despite a week of claims, contradictions and counter-claims, Allen still insists that several things are in place and we’re heading for a takeover.

One thing he points out in his responses to Newcastle fans is that there’s been absolutely no denial of these claims from Mike Ashley or the club itself.

I commented on this myself in a recent article, and I think this is pretty key in all of this.

Maybe the BZG are a little ahead of themselves in terms of how adamant they are that a deal is imminent, but Allen makes a good point “Trust me, they publicly shoot down things that are not true!”.

  1. Nothing has been agreed properly as of yet, I think we are fed up with seeing re-hashed journalism at its best. Since the story was put out there nothing new has been added. Is silence golden and no news is good news?

    Too many Journalists trying to have there opinion by guessing.
    Fact – Alledgedly BZG have said they are looking to buy Newcaslte(I’m looking to buy a new car but i cannot afford it) no harm in looking.
    Since no one else has publicly come out and made an announcement that’s where the FACT’s end i’m afraid.
    so as much as I see the words Alledgedly and a source of I’m very sceptical until there is an announcement. 😯


  2. More than a week on and in to June we have no Manager until he signs his new contract. Ashley is up to his old tricks by 0
    not letting the supporters know what the hell is going on with the sale of his club or with any thing else. He has no interest in the club or supporters but hopefully in the end a miracle will happen and we will be shot of Ashley. Soon I hope
