Amanda Staveley has made a ‘formal takeover bid’ for Newcastle United.
Sky News are reporting that Staveley’s company PCP Partners have made an offer ‘in the region of £300m’.
As part of their formal offer it is said they want ‘exclusivity on talks’.
“PCP Partners headed by Amanda Staveley has tabled a formal takeover bid for Newcastle United Football Club in the region of £300m and they hope to get exclusivity on talks this week.”
It is exactly 50 days since she attended the Newcastle v Liverpool match and was first introduced to Mike Ashley’s representatives at the club.
That introduction was said to be not arranged and contact information exchanged.
However, since then, Mike Ashley made public that the football club was up for sale.
This then followed by reports that Amanda Staveley and a number of other unnamed potential buyers had signed non-disclosure agreements.
That allowed interested parties to examine the books ahead of a prospective bid.
Little else has been on the minds of Newcastle fans so hopefully this is the next stage towards Mike Ashley leaving Newcastle United.
