Alan Nixon shares why the Premier League could be delaying approving the Newcastle United takeover

    It has been 12 weeks since the Premier League lawyers started carrying out checks on Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund after their £300 million bid to own Newcastle United was made known. The Kingdom’s links with broadcast piracy – which has since been confirmed by the World Trade Organization – have prevented them from passing the Owners’ and Directors’ Test. Saudi vowed to crack down on piracy over the weekend and have already brought down some websites, and that made many reckon the Premier League would deliver a verdict on the Magpies takeover this week. That won’t be happening from the look of things, and The Sun’s Alan Nixon has shared why he thinks the takeover is still yet to go through.

    The UK government has indicated several times that they are open to doing business with Saudi and they are not against their plans to own the St. James’ Park outfit. The takeover has been widely tipped to go through, but when that will happen remains to be seen. Newcastle owner Mike Ashley can’t wait to leave after already receiving a nonrefundable deposit, and the fans will be more than delighted to see his back. While the Premier League want the deal to go through from the look of things, their broadcast partners Qatar-based beIN Sports remain against it after Saudis’ beoutQ cost them millions of pounds as a result of the unprecedented scale of piracy.
