It’s been a hot minute without any Newcastle takeover news, and this morning fans woke up to the revelation that another party will be attempting to buy out the club.

Sky Sports News report that former Manchester United and Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon has launched a £300m bid to buy Newcastle United from Mike Ashley.

This isn’t Kenyon’s first attempt to buy the Magpies from the massively unpopular Newcastle owner, with the report stating that the English businessman tried to acquire the club last year with another consortium group, but that bid did not have the sufficient funds.

Of course, plenty of Newcastle fans were surprised with the news on social media, yet many were already expecting the deal to not happen given how many times they had seen this story before.

Here is what some Newcastle supporters had to say on Twitter…

It was an all too familiar narrative for Magpie supporters…

The Daily Mail expand on the story by claiming that Kenyon will pay £300m in three-year instalments.
