Ex-Mag contacted by Saudis over surprise return to Newcastle ahead of £300m takeover – Report

This morning, The Chronicle report that former Mag Nikos Dabizas has now been contacted by the would-be owners of Newcastle United over a potential return to St James’ Park.

They report that this would be as a potential Director of Football or in an executive role – according to a ‘source close the the player’.

Dabizas is currently the Director of Football at Greek giants Panathinaikos – where he’s built up an impressive reputation in the role – and it’s said he’d be ‘delighted to return home’ should he be offered the role ahead of a proposed £300m takeover.

Here’s a snippet from The Chronicle’s piece:

Contact has been made with Nikos Dabizas about a possible Director of Football or executive role in a new St James’ Park regime, according to sources close to the former Newcastle player.

Dabizas is Panathinaikos’s Director of Football but would be delighted to return “home” and would welcome any talks.

He retains representation in Newcastle through St James’ Square Sports Management and has previously talked to clubs in the Championship and SPL about opportunities.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard his name linked in recent weeks, but it’s interesting to see The Chronicle now state that he’s been contacted.

Would you like to see the former NUFC centre-back return ahead of a potential buyout?

    So now Ashley has got Staveley, the Reubens brothers, the Saudi Crown Prince, the PIF, Amnesty International and beIN all playing along with him, just to wind the fans up?

    You’re probably one of those people who think the virus is a hoax too

  3. I think if Nikos IS AVAILABLE and WANTS to come to SJP int he capacity he currently works at Panathanaikos then we’d be fools not to welcome him back.
    We love him and he loves us; it’s a nobrainer

    Well seeing as my Wife is out working on the NHS frontline no I dont think the Virus is a hoax !! And please tell me Mr clever have the Ruebens or Stavely, or indeed the Crown Prince made any statement about a takeover or that they are involved NO… Like every other supposed takeover it is all Media speculation and hype…. So yeah just think long and hard on that one while Ashley pisses himself laughing at YOU as he has many times before….
