Amanda Staveley and Mehrdad Ghodoussi are expected to release a statement after it was widely reported the pair are set to leave Newcastle.

The former co-owners, who are part of PCP Capital Partners, initially had 10 per cent stakes in Newcastle, but have since sold their reduced six per cent shares to leave the club.

They were instrumental in the day-to-day running of the club and will now take time to digest their exit before communicating with the fan base.

It is believed Staveley is open to another role in football.
