The Magpies were set to become one of the Premier League's richest sides but the Saudi-based consortium have now withdrawn their interest.

"With a deep appreciation for the Newcastle community and the significance of its football club, we have come to the decision to withdraw our interest in acquiring Newcastle United Football Club," the statement, acquired by Sky Sports News, read.

"We do so with regret, as we were excited and fully committed to invest in the great city of Newcastle and believe we could have returned the club to the position of its history, tradition and fans' merit.
