Newcastle United’s prospective takeover continues to rumble on into the second half of May but The Sun’s Alan Nixon believes it could be a little longer before any official announcement.
On Monday, the Premier League announced a return to training starting today as part of their ‘Project Restart’ plans to get the remaining fixtures underway.
That’s on top of having to do their due diligence in the owners and directors test for the consortium wanting to purchase the Magpies.
Nixon also claims that they’ll need to shuffle a few more papers though he also states that it should still happen, which is reflected in the odds at www.betting.co.uk, so a sign of encouragement, perhaps.
Might have a wait yet. Premier League shuffle a few more papers. Still think it happens. Why wouldn’t it? https://t.co/BlCLapWNvw
