BARRY MOAT is on the brink of completing his takeover at Newcastle.

 

But insiders admit he is frustrated that managing director Derek Llambias has slowed the deal by flying off on holiday.

 

Moat was waiting to make sure there would be no huge payout to ex-boss Kevin Keegan before completing the months of complicated talks.

 

He has offered £90million and has even put the cash in an account as proof of funds.

 

The deal should finally be completed by the middle of next month.

 

It would mean a loss of £160m for owner Mike Ashley, who bought the Toon in 2007.

 

But Ashley, also boss of Sports Direct, wants a quick sale as he prepares for a legal battle after an Office of Fair Trading investigation into claims of operating a cartel. That could mean a prison sentence and £140m fine.

"And I am told Sheard’s main backers may be the New York-based Starr Foundation, a charitable investment fund. Moat and Sheard have met for talks in recent weeks, although it is unclear whether there is any prospect of them pooling resources to fund a bid for United."

 

extract from Sunday sun. Only posted because it confirms Redheughs story that Sheard and Moat were meeting.

 

Maybe he is itk!

if this is the company that Sheard and Redheugh have been on about then I think we can safely say it looks a non starter.

 

They have assets of 1.25 billion dollars and are set up to give grants in the areas of medicine, education , social projects etc.

 

WTF would this sort of charitible American organisation want with a uk football club.

 

As I've said all along, Moat is probably the only show in town and doubts remain as to whether he is serious.

 

I think it's patently clear to most sensible fans that Ashley is using the pretence of a sale to ward off protests and plod along in the hope of a windfall return to the prem.
