Reports late last night claimed to reveal the identity of Newcastle United’s new shirt and stadium  sponsor.

The Sunday Telegraph are reporting that:

Wonga, the payday lender, is in detailed talks to become the new sponsor of Newcastle United.

Wonga, which has faced criticism for it high interest rates, is poised to replace Virgin Money from the start of the 2013/14 season.

The Sunday Telegraph understands Wonga will sponsor both the shirts and the club’s stadium in a deal believed to be worth £8m a year.

This weekend the deal had not yet been finalised but it is understood that is should be signed within a fortnight.

It is expected the deal will begin from the start of the 2013 season and last for an initial 3 years.

The stadium, named the Sports Direct Arena after Mr.Ashley’s sportswear retailer, will be renamed Wonga.

Earlier this year the company’s deal with the Football League, in which it advertised on club websites, ended just before fans were to vote on a call for the adverts to be removed from the sites amid concerns about the level of interest charged on its loans.

At this stage we only have ‘claims/reported/expected’ but IF this deal stacks up as the Sunday Telegraph claim, is this really an ‘exciting deal’ (as the club earlier this week were telling us to anticipate) to take Newcastle United forward?
