The news comes two months after Sportsmail stated Mike Ashley would take legal action with sources close to the current owner insisting he has a strong case against the League.

Newcastle Consortium Supporters Ltd told the Shields Gazette: "Bird & Bird [attorneys for the Premier League] has confirmed that the club is now in a legal dispute with the EPL regarding the proposed acquisition, which may lead to a duplication of the issues raised by the fans consortium".
