Amanda Staveley vows to win Premier League with Newcastle after takeover

Amanda Staveley has vowed to win the Premier League with Newcastle United following a takeover of the club.

The new owners are Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, chaired by the gulf state’s crown prince Mohammed bin Salman.

His total worth is around £320billion, dwarfing the likes of Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea combined.

After helping broker a deal for the Magpies worth £300m, Staveley landed a 10 per cent share of the club.

And the businesswoman has already promised Newcastle fans the Premier League in her first address to the supporters, who are still partying now outside St James Park.

He said: "First of all we'd like to thank the incredible fans, we wouldn't be here without them.

"We want to be great custodians of this club. We take our role seriously, We don't want to over-promise.

"I've seen people coming in and saying they're going to do… but we want to invest in this club at every level.

"This club is at the heart of the community. It's so touching to be able to talk about this openly.

"I'd like to thank the Premier League and Mike [Ashley] for getting us there.
