The Newcastle club are still not sold, which brings despair to their owner, Mike Ashley, who believed he had found the future owner, after several failed attempts. Only, the Premier League rejected the takeover offer presented by the British financial Amanda Staveley backed by funds from Saudi Arabia.
In a press release from the club, it is specified that Mike Ashley understands the frustrations of the fans and would like to reassure them that he is fully committed to ensuring that this buyout process is completed, as he felt it was in the best interests of the club. Mike continues to fully support Steve Bruce, the players and all staff and wish them well in the coming season. “
