Amanda Staveley discusses Premier League dream as she admits Newcastle remain an ‘interesting’ option – Chronicle Live


Amanda Staveley has reiterated her interest in buying Newcastle United.

Backed by PCP Capital Partners, Staveley has revealed she has no issues with Mike Ashley and would be keen to take United off his hands.

Ashley has so far failed to sell the club despite public claims he is keen to move on – a declaration that is being questioned by Toon supporters.


But speaking to The National in Dubai, financier Staveley said: “We are big fans of Newcastle, big fans of the team,” she said. 

“We have no issue with Mr Ashley, that [the ‘time waster’ claim] is water under the bridge. It’s still an interesting club to us, the fans are fantastic, but we are looking at a lot of clubs.”

Ashley recently suggested that Peter Kenyon and his US-consortium were the ideal fit for United.

But those hopes seem to be dwindling now and there are strong suggestions Ashley may even release a statement on his next move.


He said: We are sensible people who invest other people’s money. We would also put our own capital in – of course we would. But with financial fair play rules, all football clubs have to be financially stable.

“I am hugely proud of Man City – we are not looking at creating another Man City in terms of the huge levels of investment they’ve had on players.

“But what I love about Man City is how they have invested so well in Manchester, in the area. That’s really important, and the sort of thing we would want to do elsewhere.”
