‘Looks a complete PR stunt’ – Many Newcastle fans react to latest takeover update

Many Newcastle fans have been reacting on social media to a statement regarding the takeover.

Capital Radio UAE presenter Peter Redding, who claims he is in contact with the Bin Zayed Group, released an update from the Middle East based company on his Twitter page.

He posted: “Following a meeting with Bin Zayed Group officials they would like to put on record the following information for NUFC fans:

‘Both parties have worked diligently in finalising a deal, none more so than ourselves. We have completed every aspect required in a takeover process.

‘Press claims of no bids or Premier League approval processes are simply untrue.

‘The current owners have cooperated amicably throughout this process and if a deal is not forthcoming it will not be due to lack of effort from both parties.”

Redding maintains the statement confirms there is a bid and the group wants the takeover to be completed. However, some Newcastle supporters do not believe it, and even think this statement means the deal is off, if there ever was one in the first place.

Many Magpies fans have voiced their views and many are now in the belief the ‘fakeover’ could have been a PR stunt all along.
