Two North-East Journalists have shared positive takeover updates on social media today, revealing why we have reason to be hopeful that a Saudi-backed buyout will finalised – despite complaints from beIN Sports and Amnesty International.
George Caulkin of The Athletic and Luke Edwards of The Telegraph took to Twitter to keep fans in the loop on the current situation surrounding the Saudi-backed bid – and both updates are reassuringly positive.
Here are both NUFC writer’s tweets today, with Edward’s in particular providing an interesting scope – saying he’s been told that the Premier League do NOT have the ‘appetite or the power‘ to block such a move:
Caulkin is one of the most respected local journalists out there, and it was him who originally broke news of a takeover being close back in March – only to be laughed at by sections of our fanbase.
If he (and Staveley’s camp for that matter) remains positive on a deal being done, then we should too.
It will be two weeks on Tuesday since the Companies House document sent every Toon fan into a frenzy, so you would like to think something official will be announced before the end of the month.
I don’t know about you, but this waiting game while in lockdown is killing me…
