Video: Mike Ashley Reveals ‘It’s Possible’ Newcastle Could Be Sold By January Transfer Window

Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley has revealed the club could be sold by the start of the January transfer window, as Magpies fans desperately hope manager Rafa Benitez is handed a hefty kitty to strengthen his squad.

The St. James’s Park side looked prime candidates for relegation from the Premier League this season after a woeful start to the season but three wins from their last four games have things looking a little more bright on Tyneside.

Even still, Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at home to West Ham was a timely reminder of the help Benitez needs, and was accompanied by a ‘late walk-in’ protest from thousands of supporters, revolting against Ashley’s ownership.

And having been reportedly close to selling up in the past, Ashley revealed in a Sky News interview earlier today that his exit could finally be on the cards, with talks of a potential sale already at an advanced stage:

Could we finally see Newcastle given the owner they’ve deserved for a decade or so?

And just how much would a prospective owner need to invest to improve the current squad?
