The ownership of Newcastle United has been a hot topic on Tyneside for far too long, with Mike Ashley currently in control of the club.
One man who has been heavily linked with a potential takeover is Peter Kenyon, with The Chronicle publishing an extensive article on the prospective buyer.

READ NEWCASTLE VERDICT
The talk about Peter Kenyon taking over Newcastle dates back years and, as of yet, nothing has come of it. Mike Ashley is still the owner and there is nothing to suggest that it will change any time soon.
There are no concrete reports claiming that Kenyon is able to complete a takeover of Newcastle and Ashley has said nothing to indicate he will be leaving the club in the near future.
