Amanda Staveley's Group Tables £300M Bid for Newcastle United

Amanda Staveley's Group Tables £300M Bid for Newcastle United

Amanda Staveley's consortium has offered an estimated £300m to take Newcaslte United off Mike Ashley's hands.

As of last night, Staveley, 44, was awaiting a response from Ashley's representatives, who are said to be disappointed that details of the bid have been made public.

The statement also said: "As one of the Premier League's oldest and best supported football clubs - and for the benefit of its many fans and supporters in the UK and across the world - Newcastle United requires a clear direction and a path to a bright and successful future".

The sports retail magnate bought the club off Sir John Hall, his son Douglas and the late Freddy Shepherd for £133m in 2007 and latest accounts suggest he has since put in £129m in interest-free loans.

Sen. Flake: GOP is 'toast' if it follows Trump, Moore
"He'll be a NO on tax cuts because his political career anyway is 'toast.'", Trump wrote of Flake on Twitter. In the exchange with Flake, Mesa Mayor John Giles appeared to tell the senator to run for higher office.

Staveley helped broker the purchase of Manchester City by Sheikh Mansour bin-Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan in 2009, and it was reported she led Dubai International Capital's £400m bid for Liverpool in 2008.

She watched Newcastle's 1-1 draw with Liverpool in October from the St James' Park directors' box but has since stayed away from the ground, instead sending her representatives to matches.

The Magpies have been relegated twice from the Premier League during Ashley's reign.

Newcastle now sit in 11th place in the Premier League, and although they suffered a 4-1 away defeat to Manchester United last weekend, they look to have adapted to life back in the Premier League nicely.
