Rob Elliott Newcastle United

Newcastle United back up goalkeeper Rob Elliot admits ‘our futures could change drastically’ if new owners come in. The bid put together by Amanda Staveley, and backed by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund and the Reuben Brothers, is currently in the hands of the Premier League, who have been conducting their owners’ and directors’ test.

Rob Elliot said “I’ve had this question so many times. I’m really sorry guys but we literally don’t hear anything, That’s not a cop out or anything like that. It’s just because as players you are there to play football and the last thing clubs wants are any distractions. Our futures could change drastically if new owners [come in]. When new managers come in, it’s the same thing. I would love to be able to tell people something but I don’t know, myself. Ninety per cent of the time, we find out from Sky Sports News like everyone else. The guy at the training ground who does all the transfers will turn up one day in the off season and say, ‘Oh, we’ve signed someone’. ‘Who is it?’ and then he will be like, ‘It’s on Sky News’ and then you will be like, ‘Brilliant!’ and they walk in the building five minutes later. Somehow, the news outlets get everything before us so no joy on that one I’m afraid.”
