Keith Downie has revealed an interesting message Mike Ashley’s camp have put to the Premier League regarding the potential resurrection of a Saudi takeover at St James’ Park.
Following a letter published by Richard Masters this afternoon to Newcastle MP Chi Onwurah, Ashley is believed to have put this proposal to the Premier League via Sky Sports News:
‘If the information requested by the Premier League to the consortium was now provided, would the Premier League be in a position to act on the takeover?‘
This comes after Masters stated that the consortium was offered the prospect of an independent arbitration after the Premier League concluded that PIF and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia are not separate entities, but the PIF declined.
While this raises a fair point from the NUFC owner, I would question why the Saudi PIF haven’t done this already. Do they have something to hide or are the Premier League actually putting roadblocks in the way?
We know await a response from the buying side…
