The Saudi consortium that were looking to spend £300 buying a wee club in the Northeast have backed out over all the hassle that came with it. Newcastle did profit from a £17m non-refundable deposit so I suppose it’s not all bad news for them.

It appears Mbappé will now remain at PSG this summer as Mike Ashley and his band of experts shift their summer approach to bringing more Championship-level dross in to play at the Sports Direct Arena next season.

You have to feel for Newcastle fans.. just as they thought their nightmare would be over.

Premier League, who held up the deal, must be pleased that they don't have to make a decision now - there would have been criticism either way.

They been doomed from day one with this deal and don't help with people interfering as well about that they were connected to a British person death .

I didn't think it was going to get passed but premier league will be happier now I think ,

And Mike Ashley don't help them either as wanting to much for the club as he wants rid of it but better dropping price .

Newcastle made a good decision to prevent the takeover by Saudi-Arabians. The fact that some Arabian billionairs invest a lot of money in a team does not guarantee that everything is change for good, see Bolton Wanderers.

The whole sad thing about the takeover of Newcastle United, which will happen at some point to someone, is that Mike Ashley will make money. Probably second only to Philip Green as a businessman who is just unpleasant and nasty.
