Ex-Newcastle owner Ashley sues Staveley

Updated: Jan 9, 2022

High court claim filed three months after sale of club

Former Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley is reportedly taking legal action against Amanda Staveley, the financier who led the Saudi-backed takeover of the club.

There is little information about the exact details of the High Court claim, which has been issued three months after the £305 million sale was completed.

The deal involved the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF) acquiring a majority stake in the club last autumn.

PIF was advised by Allen & Overy on the deal, with Ashley advised by Dentons.
