Magpie supporters were situated outside Parliament Square and Downing Street demanding the club’s arbitration case about the change of ownership is heard in public.

Geordie fanatics, Ant and Dec, took to social media to back the supporters staging a march.

Ant and Dec’s message, via their Twitter account, read: “All they’re asking for is transparency around the arbitration regarding Newcastle takeover.

“Why would the Premier League not want that too if fans really are ‘the lifeblood of the game’? What is there to hide? Good luck.”

A prominent member of the buying consortium PCP, Amanda Staveley, joined talkSPORT on Friday to deliver a strong message to Newcastle fans about the takeover saga.

Staveley engaged in a heated discussion with former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan on air, with the latter accusing her of ‘rabble rousing’ to a ‘gullible fanbase’.

“We are looking forward to welcoming you into St James’ Park and we’re looking forward to trying to get this transaction over the wall – and it will do.

“We are all there, we are all passionate about Newcastle, all the consortium members are, I have made that very clear in my last two interviews.”

I have made my points very clear to the government and I think the arbitration is key,” she explained.

“We want this transaction and we want to very much be able to invest in the club, to invest in the north, and invest in Newcastle. There’s no reason why that can’t go ahead.

“Obviously this arbitration process is critical, and I think that is why all of us want to see what is going on between the Premier League and Mike [Ashley].”
