Mike Ashley’s latest takeover claims suggest Kenyon’s ‘£300m bid’ is a complete non-starter..

If Mike Ashley’s latest comments on a potential takeover are anything to go by, Peter Kenyon has got it wrong once again in his ‘bid’ to buy Newcastle United.

Back in July, the NUFC owner said the following when quizzed about a takeover during his ‘exclusive’ chat with the Daily Mail:

“The day someone buys Newcastle United Football Club, they’ll do their due diligence – and finished. It will happen like Manchester City.

“By the time the media find out, it’s already complete. There’s no need for a delay with Newcastle United.

“It is, honestly, a very well-run football club.”

These comments – which were made just a few months ago – go completely against how Kenyon’s approach in the latest takeover bid.

Why? Because his alleged £300m bid – which is backed by US investors GACP Sports – couldn’t have been made more public, with the story now being run by several local and national outlets and a 46-page brochure also being released to boot.

Ashley is a fool and someone I rarely agree with, but I agree with him on this – ‘By the time the media find out, it’s already complete’. When Newcastle United is finally sold, it’ll be done and dusted without any leaks or whispers of a potential deal – it won’t be played out through the press like this.

So, unless this deal between Kenyon and Ashley is already done and dusted (highly unlikely), I’m inclined to take these new Kenyon claims with an almighty pinch of salt.

  1. Comments made a few months ago?? Really, so your article is a non starter then as developments could have happened in a few months. Every sale starts with a bid and if I remember right then Citeh takeover was knowledge and no secret.
    Using what Mashley said a few months ago is purely a **** article. 😥

  2. His latest takeover claims…… from July?

    If Kenyon’s takeover is a non-starter its not because it’s being played out in public. It’s because he’s offering 50 million below Ashley’s asking price.
