Nigerians Bid To Take Over Newcastle United

A consortium based in Nigeria is planning a bid to take over Newcastle United, according to reports in Africa.

The Nigerian company claims to have £350million - and is bidding to secure the remaining funding which would improve its chances of a successful takeover.

Chief Executive Officer of the NVA Management Chris Nathaniel, whose company are said to be handling the deal, told Kick Off Nigeria: "All along I have been working hard to get wealthy and football loving Nigerian entrepreneurs to buy the club since Mike Ashley indicated his willingness to sell the club to the person, people or entrepreneurs who can meet the £400million selling price of the club.

One of the main aims of the Nigerian consortium's would be to reappoint Kevin Keegan as manager. Keegan is a major part of their plans.
