Update:

Takeover update

 

Since Monday's unexpected announcement by Mike Ashley that he was in talks to sell the club and hoped that a deal could be done by the end of 2018, there's been the expected deluge of claims and speculation.

 

Here's what we've been able to glean ourselves: 

 

The main bid is one spearheaded by the former Chelsea and Manchester United CEO Peter Kenyon and claims of interest from three further groups remain unverified. 

 

That uncertainty is claimed to be due to confidentiality clauses, but there remains a suspicion that claims of other interested parties are exaggerated in order to pressure the main bidder into action.   

 

It's understood that financial consultants working for Kenyon travelled to Tyneside earlier this week and have visited SJP in order as part of their own valuation.

 

In order for that to happen, the proposed new owners would have had to satisfy specified financial criteria - but not deposit funds in a third party account as was previously claimed.

 

The £300m asking price that has been bandied around isn't fixed in terms of a one-off payment and a form of down payment could be acceptable, given proof of sufficient funds.

 

One major obstacle to a speedy takeover is that the formalities required to be undertaken by the Premier League take up to a fortnight - and will take longer at this time of year due to their festive closedown.

It's a piss take man.

 

Kenyon used to head up Umbro back in the day didn't he? Ashley currently owns a portion of Umbro even.

 

Kenyon is also an ex Chelsea guy, and probably has ties with Dennis Wise somehow.

 

They're all part of the same cesspool man. Just a bunch of pals having fun, taking the piss.

As i’ve said previously, kenyon is also best mates with Steve Gibson and Jorge Mendes. Whole thing is as transparent as always.

Man, I wish you were right, but the stench of deceit is too strong man! It is absolutely pungent.

Yes both of them!

I'm just telling you what I've been told from 2 friends who know him well

The only other thing I know is that he will be hands on and will replace Charnley

 

 

charnley's pointless anyway without someone pulling his strings and telling him what to do.

livid, but not put off I hope?

does he seem to have a grand plan for the club?

 

Still in talks and they have been for quite a while.Kenyon is the front man for the consortium so I doubt he has the final say. The words I was told was they have'sufficient funds to take the club forward'
