Yasir Al-Rumayyan makes new transfer pledge in meeting with Amanda Staveley – Report

Newcastle United chairman Yasir Al-Rumayyan pledged to back the club’s ambitious spending plans during a series meetings over the weekend, according to journalist Graeme Bailey.

He claims that the PIF governor remained at St James’ Park after meeting Eddie Howe and the players following Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Cambridge, discussing our transfer plans with Amanda Staveley and Mehrdad Ghodoussi.

The former Sky Sports reporter currently at 90min also states that these talks were ‘extremely detailed’ and went beyond midnight, with all parties agreeing that ‘swifter action’ needs to be taken to get deals over the line as we push to bring in a striker and centre-back before Saturday’s crucial clash with Watford.

Al-Rumayyan is believed to have given financial assurances to Amanda Staveley – who is taking care of the day to day running of the club alongside our husband – confirming money is freely available.

Howe stated after Saturday’s game that the club’s owners have been ‘very supportive’, insisting there visit to the dressing room after the game was another signal that everyone is pulling in the same direction – despite our struggles this season.

Bailey claims that we’re looking to bring in ‘at least’ SIX new players this month and believes a move for Reims striker Hugo Ekiteke is at an advanced stage.

  1. Even if Wilson was fit we’d need at least one Striker and now he’s not going to play for weeks we need 2 Quality Strikers

    Every one is bleating on about Howe has empowered Joelington – has he ….

    ..or is it that it looks like that only because every other player is underperforming?

    It’s just headless chicken time – look go for & get ONE player at a time as this is quickly becoming farcical

    Should have firstly cleared everyone (Jones) before getting a Manager – then Amanda bottled it in from of the Saudi’s after she got turned down she went for Howe Simply because he wouldn’t turn it down and went on about how he knew a few players = Allah help us – Fraser needs shifting ASAP

    We need a MANAGER


  2. Unfortunately this takeover is rapidly becoming a joke, sure we have signed some players, with our right side defense from the other team in Madrid, a certainty, but what now ?
    Are we actually looking at anyone either known in the EPL, or anyone we actually are aware of, sure you can attempt to sign whoever you please , but without a pre discussion talk it could become only a case f wishful thinking and to make an actual signing we need a top visionary who knows all abut rebuilding a side and it’s complexity, sorry I can’t buy these people they are making the job very difficult and it may take years more than we thought.
