NEWCASTLE'S potential Saudi Arabian owners are "supremely unconcerned" by a recent takeover bid from Henry Mauriss – with their takeover decision "close".

Last week, US billionaire Mauriss lodged a £350million offer to gazump the Saudis and buy Newcastle from under their noses.

But Duncan Castles has revealed the Saudi Arabian party are not even remotely worried about the rumours and are believed to be "close" to completion.

Castles went as far as claiming the owners were "supremely unconcerned" by the fresh bid talk.

The Saudis are believed to be confident they won't be outbid and will continue with their takeover.

It was also revealed that indications from lawyers and from Newcastle themselves suggested a move was "close".

Castles also claimed current owner Mike Ashley will SUE the Premier League should they block the potential takeover of the club he's clearly now eager to sell.
