Newcastle United fans are on the verge of getting what their heart has been yearning for with the Newcastle United takeover set to be completed soon
After months of dilly dallying with the Premier League putting a halt to Newcastle United’s proposed takeover, the club is all set to get a new owner.
The takeover which has stretched for 18 months is on the verge of going through after Saudi Arabia indicated that it would lift its ban on broadcaster beIN Sports. beIN was banned in the country owing to the ongoing tussle with Qatar with Saudi Arabia refusing to allow the Qatari network to function in its country.
With no alternatives to watch Premier League matches in the country, illegal streaming was at an all time high in Saudi Arabia. And these concerns saw the Premier League intervene as Mike Ashley tried to get his hands rid of the club.
