After seeing today’s documentation published on Companies House, Simon Jordan has told TalkSPORThe believes Mike Ashley may finally be on the verge of selling Newcastle United.
As a former Palace owner, he gives an interesting insight into the documents that Newcastle fans have desperately been looking to work out over the past few hours – and his latest comments are promising for us fans desperate to see the end of Ashley’s regime.
Here is a segment from Jordan, who appeared on Jim White’s mid-morning show
As he states on several occasions, something is clearly going on here, with this appearing to set the wheels in motion for a transaction between the two parties.
He says that Ashley may feel the time is right to sell up, which would suggest that the value of the club could drop drastically when the inevitable economic crisis occurs on the back of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now could be seen as the perfect time for him to wash his hands from us and move on, after 13 unpopular years at the helm – something that is bound to have taken its toll on him. I’m sure the rumoured £300/350 million that’s being mooted would soften the blow!
A deal between St James’ Holdings and Amanda Staveley’s PCP is clearly afoot and, as he implies, that can surely only mean one thing?
It’s hard to not get carried away with all this speculation, despite being let down on numerous occasions time and time again.
For the sake of every Newcastle fan around the world, we’re praying that this is true!
