Mike Ashley 'no longer looking to sell' Newcastle United
Mike Ashley is "no longer looking to sell" Newcastle United, according to a report.
Ashley put the club up for sale 17 months ago, and the move brought a number of would-be buyers, including Amanda Staveley and Peter Kenyon, to the table.
However, no bidder was able to table a suitable offer to Ashley, who has been looking for around £300million.
And The Sunday Times claim that Ashley has become "deeply frustrated" at the process.
Fans, angered by two relegations and years of under-investment, had hoped for a quick sale when the billionaire originally announced his intention to sell the club.
However, the sale process went nowhere fast, and Ashley broke off talks with Dubai-based financier Staveley 13 months ago.
Kenyon, meanwhile, unsuccessfully attempted to put together a bid more recently.
It is not clear whether Ashley will make a formal statement on his intentions for the club.
