Newcastle owner Mike Ashley has confirmed he's put the club up for sale for £100million.
More than a week after it emerged that Ashley was looking to get out for the second time since he took control, the Magpies issued an official statement setting a price as Keith Harris, chairman of investment bankers Seymour Pierce, continued his search for buyers.
The statement read: "The board of Newcastle United can today confirm that the club is for sale at the price of £100million.
"Interested parties should contact Newcastle United at email@example.com (or Keith Harris at Seymour Pierce) for further details.
The announcement came as no surprise, with Ashley's desperation to offload the club he bought for £134.4million in May 2007 growing by the day.
