Ashley ‘in advanced talks’ to sell Newcastle United

Mike Ashley has revealed he is in advanced talks to sell Newcastle United and says it is “possible” that the club could be sold before the January transfer window.

“Talks are at a more progressed stage than they’ve ever been. I’m very keen to sell it to the right buyer, so everybody’s happy,” said Ashley, who bought the club in 2007.

It remains unclear who Ashley is in talks with. It has been reported that Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United owner Arthur Blank was a potential buyer but this was subsequently denied.
