Newcastle United have been linked with a takeover for months now, and it seems that the process could soon be concluded.

According to Football Insider, the Saudi backed consortium interested in taking over the Premier League club remains committed to the deal and hope to finalise things by the end of July.

Current owner Mike Ashley took legal action against the governing bodies after a £300 million takeover was blocked last summer.

He has entered into an arbitration process, and all parties are privately confident that the takeover will eventually go through.

Ashley has been heavily criticised over the years for the way he has run the club, and new owners could help Newcastle realise their potential.

Saudi investment is likely to bring quality signings, and the Magpies could finally challenge the top clubs once again.

Star winger Allan Saint-Maximin recently called for the club to show more ambition in the transfer market.

A club of their stature should not be fighting for survival every season.

New owners may bring a managerial change, with Steve Bruce not exactly the flavour of the month with Newcastle supporters. Here is how the fans have reacted to the news.
