After several weeks of speculation and apparent bumps along the road, it appears this is all finally coming to a head.
At one stage, the takeover looked to be in doubt after reports emerged suggesting that there had been new evidence against the case of piracy involving Saudi Arabia, who will control 80% of the club, and then, it was claimed that several Premier League clubs were against the takeover.
It left some at St James’ Park worried, anxious and quite angry that they’d had another attempt at getting rid of Mike Ashley fall through at the final hurdle but if Lonjon is to be believed, supporters can begin to get the cans ready for a big, big week.
