Newcastle United Football Club owner Mike Ashley and British businesswoman Amanda Staveley have met for the first time in London to discuss the sale of the Premier League club. Investment firm PCP Capital Partners run by Staveley made a fresh offer of around £300m.
Newcastle are yet to comment, but they have not denied the meeting took place.
Ashley said in October he wanted to sell the club after 10 years in charge.
Staveley helped broker the purchase of Manchester City by Sheikh Mansour in 2009 and it was reported she led Dubai International Capital’s £400m bid for Liverpool in 2008.
