According to BBC Newcastle, via Roker Report, the MSD Capital group, led by billionaire Michael Dell, are nearing a deal to become the majority shareholders at the Stadium of Light.
Stewart Donald and Charlie Methven are expected to remain involved with the club, keeping a smaller stake and staying on as board members.
TalkSPORT have since delivered a further update, again via Roker Report, claiming that while the deal won’t happen this week, it is “imminent”.
