Premier League chief executive Richard Masters has broken his silence on the ongoing Saudi takeover saga via a letter to Blaydon MP Liz Twist – a response which includes a few intriguing details.
Twist wrote to Masters back in August, demanding clarity for her constituents on Project Restart as well as the stalled Saudi takeover.
