For a club which boasts a worldwide fanbase, Newcastle are yet to do justice to their potential. Part of the reason for their obscurity is Mike Ashley if the fans are to be believed. The man at the helm has been unanimously criticised for his negligence towards the club.
So when rumblings about a prospective takeover came into the fray, Magpies supporters were bound to be pleased. However a recent tweet from a certain West Ham sponsor seem to suggest that the deal might be off.
The news comes after speculation of a £300 million bid by Amanda Staveley, the model turned businesswoman has previously brokered Manchester City’s sale to Etihad owners and is well connected in Premier League realms.
However, Rich energy (West Ham Ladies sponsor) have quashed any persisting rumours of a sale, notifying that reports linking Staveley to the Toons are wide of the mark.
Check out the tweet from Rich Energy below –
The Toon fans though, are having none of it and are accusing the energy drink brand of spreading fake news.
