Newcastle United takeover deal threatened as BeINSports ‘make piracy claim’ to Premier League

The deal for the takeover of NewcastleUnite could be blocked after BeIN Sports made a request to the Premier League to block it on the grounds of piracy.

The group – who are part owned by PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi – own rights to the English Premier League to be shown in foreign countries and invest a lot of money in the English game.

And according to The Times, they have formally requested that the deal be blocked by the league body on the basis Saudi Arabia engages in TV piracy.

That could put the move in doubt with a £300m fee agreed for former Rangers shareholder Mike Ashley to sell the club to PCP partners and the Saudi fund, controlled by Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
