Keith Harris and Orville: Sale on course
Deal fixer and all around market magnate Keith Harris has gone on record to publicise his confidence on Mike Ashley having a deal done for NUFC by the time December comes around. Whilst flagging from the original October timeframe mooted, the sale is still expected to go through by the time the January window reopens, which is the danger to many fans. Harris said:
"I`m quietly confident there`ll be a good solution for Mike and the fans. In his time of owning it, Mike has cleaned up the balance sheets and Newcastle is one of the few clubs that has no debt whatsoever. That makes it very attractive to an owner. There are several people who are seriously interested who are looking at it. This isn`t the type of asset where you say: 'Here`s the deadline, put in your bids`."
