Some intriguing movement on Companies House has just been highlighted in the last few moments, with a new director being appointed to NCUK Investment – the vehicle that could be used to transfer shares in Newcastle United.
Saudi national Bander Mogren is the man who’s just been added – alongside Yasir Al-Rumayyan and Vincent Cheshire – with Mogren being the chief operating officer of the PIF (Public Investment Fund).

Interestingly, The Chronicle have since revealed that ‘rules state directors must be on board before checks can take place’ – and Bin Mogren was added on April 9th, indicating the checks have been ongoing for 19 days.
with this in mind and the appointment only just being filed today, it’s another big sign that this £300m deal is nearing completion.
This news comes after George Caulkin insisted that the Saudis were well on track to gain Premier League approval, even suggesting that it should be announced “very soon” once the full payment arrives in Mike Ashley’s bank account.
More signs that an announcement is edging closer, with this week feeling as though we could finally be about to see this saga reach a positive conclusion – and breathe a huge sigh of relief.
