Plenty of Newcastle United fans have flocked to a recent post from Sky Sports’ Pete Graves over the weekend.
The Magpies reporter provided an update over their ongoing takeover saga and claimed that the process is likely to move into this coming week despite various sources expecting it to go through during the previous seven days.
It means the St James’ Park faithful have been waiting for news for nearly three months now and clearly, many are growing tired at the situation.
Will this week finally be 'the' week?
Some responded to Graves claiming that it wasn’t happening whilst others were left begging that it happens sometime soon.
Off the pitch, current owner Mike Ashley and co have started to make key decisions such as handing out new contracts to Javier Manquillo and Andy Carroll whilst the northeast outfit have even made their first signing in goalkeeper Mark Gillespie.
Whether the Premier League actually come to a decision anytime soon remains to be seen.
Here’s how supporters reacted to Graves’ tweet…
And then it'll be August 1st. And then it'll be 'imminent' in mid-August.

Love you Pete but if I had a penny for every time I’d heard “next week” I’d be able to buy the club

Waiting’s difficult and depressing but not as bad as the thought of it getting knocked back though hopefully soon eh !

To be honest Pete. I’ll just be glad it’s been given the green light. Even if I have to wait another month or two for the announcement. Biggest concern is it being blocked.
