Newcastle United’s takeover is on the verge of completion and UAE ex-pat radio host and Magpies fan Andrew Davis has made a big claim on Twitter this week that suggests that it is indeed done and dusted.
He states that his source has said that all players at the club have been told the deal has been complete having only returned to training on Tuesday for the first time in several months.
Just told today on #nufc that the players at the club have all been told the #NUFCTakeover has been completed. Same source the day before companies house developments hit he told me that was coming also.
God knows but telling a whole squad to keep quiet 🤫 on anything is tough.

The final decision has been on the Premier League’s shoulders for many weeks and as the first phase of their ‘Project Restart’ got underway, it seems rather plausible that they have had time to now ratify the Saudi-backed consortium’s takeover bid.
It’s now surely only a matter of time before the official word from all parties involved comes out and this latest update will have many at St James Park on alert.
