Newcastle United fans are loving the latest news surrounding their imminent takeover after reports emerged suggesting that the UK government wouldn’t intervene in any deal.
The Telegraph claim Conservative MP Giles Watling’s request to investigate the Saudi Arabia-backed bid over piracy of sports in the Middle East state will be rejected.
Instead, the Digital, Culture, Media & Sport select committee will focus on the impact that the pandemic has had on the sectors it oversees.
It means that the only green light left to overcome is that of the Premier League, who are still undergoing the owners and directors test.
The Magpies faithful have been lapping up this latest report on social media after it was relayed by popular fan account @NUFC360.
United’s takeover may be dragging on and on, but it appears as if it is slowly edging ever closer to being official.
Here’s how the supporters have been reacting…
So you’re basically saying “cans” 360?

Let’s have faith in the system. You will always have a couple of rogue wolves in a pack but this Government won’t intervene in the process of the takeover. Exactly why from all previous posts. This will go through 👍🏻⚫️⚪️

Is this the first time we’ve seen the green light flicker? I hope so. It would be nice to relieve some of the tension and be done with Ashley. New chapter, new beginnings.
