Premier League

Premier League chairman Gary Hoffman is set to resign from his position following Newcastle United’s takeover by a Saudi Arabian-based consortium.

There has been a backlash from clubs relating to the takeover after they complained to the Premier League in October after it cleared the deal, with frustration over how the buyers passed the owners’ and directors’ test.

Hoffman has been in charge of the Premier League for 18 months and has taken the brunt of the blame from clubs over the green light being given to the takeover by the Public Investment Fund.

According to reports, clubs have already started the process of stopping commercial deals associated with the ownership in an effort to reduce the amount of money Newcastle can spend, for fear it will distort the league.
