Saudi Arabia Consortium Pull Out Of Bid To Buy Newcastle United

Newcastle United's Proposed Takeover Is Now In 'Serious Doubt'

published at9 months ago

"We do so with regret, as we were excited and fully committed to invest in the great city of Newcastle and believe we could have returned the club to the position of its history, tradition and fans' merit.

"Ultimately, during the unforeseeably prolonged process, the commercial agreement between the Investment Group and the club's owners expired and our investment thesis could not be sustained, particularly with no clarity as to the circumstances under which the next season will start and the new norms that will arise for matches, training and other activities."

A key figure in the slated takeover was British businesswoman Amanda Staveley, a former girlfriend of Prince Andrew who organised the group of investors through her strong connections in the Middle East.
