SL View: Could NUFC takeover be off after journalist’s Ashley reveal?

Newcastle United are set to be handed a £50 million transfer kitty this summer by owner Mike Ashley, according to The Sun’s Alan Nixon. While the news will come as a huge boost for manager Steve Bruce, Newcastle fans are unlikely to be happy. The Magpies faithful want Ashley gone as soon as possible, with the Amanda Staveley-led Public Investment Fund looking to revive their £300m takeover after pulling out last summer. The Newcastle chairman also wants out and is hoping the arbitration hearing against the Premier League will go in his favour in a bid to have the takeover approved. However, Ashley’s decision to provide £50m in transfer funds does not look like the action of a man preparing to leave St James’ Park. The Magpies boss has refused to bring out the chequebook and spend heav...

Newcastle United are interested in signing William Saliba on loan this summer.  The Magpies are looking to bolster their defence in the summer transfer window, and they have been heavily linked with a move for Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer.

Leeds and Newcastle in the race to sign €15m-rated ace with 10 goal contributions

Leeds United and Newcastle United are interested in signing the Brest defender Romain Perraud. According to L’Equipe (via GFFN), Southampton are apparently leading the chase to sign the 23-year-old who could cost around €15 million this summer.
