To mark the 20th anniversary of Mike Ashley taking over Newcastle United, Lee Charnley has agreed to a wide-ranging interview with The Chronicle.

Lee began by saying that not only is it the 20th anniversary of Mike Ashley buying the club but he has also now been its Chief Executive for 13 years.



Finally, Lee confirmed that despite the club being first put on the market since 2009,now 18 years later they are no nearer to finding a buyer who would meet their valuation of the club and Mike Ashley expected to own Newcastle United ‘for the foreseeable future’.



When asked if this wouldn’t mean that more iconic views of the ground would be lost forever, Lee replied that he didn’t know what all the fuss was about as Mike Ashley didn’t have any problems viewing the ground from his private helicopter as it flew back to London.

Echoing the words of Derek Llambias when he revealed that Wonga were going to sponsor Newcastle, Lee Charnley said this new deal would ensure ‘that Newcastle can regularly compete for honours at the highest possible level.’ Stating that he hoped the club could have a real go at the EFL Trophy.

He said that one of the mistakes he’d made in the past was not communicating with the fans.

The club had managed to find a new shirt sponsor and were pleased to announce West End Loan Sharks would be sponsoring their shirt for the coming  season.
