Saudi Arabian takeover by Newcastle United is reported to be blocked by a group of Premier League clubs, with unrest currently building over the potential deal.
After new legal documents emerged, a group of clubs could demand that the Premier League block the £ 300 m sales.
According to, these documents have provided evidence of a link between the Saudi state and the country’s illegal streaming of sports.
The lawyers have taken over the paperwork, and the proposed takeover is now facing further delays.
The report goes on to claim that Mike Ashley is becoming increasingly concerned and that the billionaire has been considering seeking other buyers.
