- Dr. Tom Bason has now suggested that although things are not achieved overnight, Newcastle United could win the elusive title soon
Following a blockbuster takeover by a Saudi-backed consortium, Newcastle United can win the Premier League within ten years according to a football finance expert, SPORTbible reports.
Since Mike Ashley sold the club for £305million last week, an overhaul is already expected at St. James’ Park after new director Amanda Staveley claimed the club's long-term target is to win the Premier League title.
Such goal could be realised within 10 years says football expert Dr. Tom Bason, in a chat with Sky Sports when asked about the future of the club.

"Well, it won't be easy. We've seen lots of clubs in recent years spend lots of money and not reach the top four. Everton, for example. And money isn't a guarantee of success.
"City and Chelsea have money but they also have excellent infrastructure within the club that has taken them many years to build up.
"So, in terms of their playing and financial management within the club, it's not something that's come overnight.
"Within 10 years it's certainly feasible if they start to put the right building blocks in place now."
Frank Lampard linked with Newcastle United coaching job
It was gathered that current manager Steve Bruce is already preparing for a sack as new club owners set to embark on an entire overhaul of the team.
And former Blues’ boss Lampard is set for return to return to a managerial position as the new Magpies’ boss, according to reports.
It was further gathered that Lampard will speak with the club as soon as Steve Bruce’ departure is announced this week.
Manchester United suffer injury blow
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Man United have been dealt a huge injury blow after it was confirmed Raphael Varane will be out of action for "a few weeks."
It is understood Varane sustained a groin injury while on international duty with France earlier in the week.
The versatile defender lasted just 43 minutes during France's UEFA Nations League final with Spain that saw Didier Deschamps men stage a dramatic comeback to win 2-1 at the San Siro.
