Must be tough being surrounded by all that wallpaper.
"What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love." - Sir Bobby Robson

The sale proceeds won't go to Ashley, they will stay in SD. It does show signs that SD's shopping spree is starting to weigh on their balance sheet. Hopefully they keep it up and MA disposes of NUFC to rescue his baby.

Also, my first thought this might be a nifty way for MA to put cash into the business for some better security than just equity, but if it was a related party transaction then it would have to be disclosed. The company they sold it to appears to have been formed so quickly it hasn't even appeared on Companies House yet (or perhaps is an offshore vehicle).

Is it another Ashley company that he has his fingers in?

Out of all the groups we've seen over the last few years, i'd probably be most excited with them running things, not that I think it will happen, because wee Mike Ashley.
