Joe Kinnear spoke publicly again this morning to reveal that Mike Ashley was now in talks with up to eight consortiums. With such a high level of interest it seems likely that we`ll be under new management sooner rather than later, something JFK is very aware of. When asked if he was expecting the caretaker role to be made full time he said:

‘I don’t think so, to be honest, because I know for a fact Mike is talking to eight consortiums. I don’t know the outcome of those. I haven’t got a time-scale on it, so I don’t really know what the outcome is. But I know he is in talks with at least eight consortiums because he has told me that himself.

Who they are, what they are, when it will happen, there is no time-scale on it. I am contracted for eight games, but I assume that should due diligence and the deals go on a little bit longer, it may run into 10 or 12 games.’
