Ashley not actively seeking Newcastle buyer
Mike Ashley is not actively seeking to sell Newcastle United.
PA Sport says while any prospective buyer could open the door to a deal by tabling a suitable offer, Ashley is not attempting to offload the business he bought six years ago as a matter of urgency.
A newspaper report this morning suggested the club is on the market once again.
Ashley completed a £134.4million takeover of Newcastle during the summer of 2007.
