Newcastle Gets Nod for Loans from Saudi-Owned Clubs as Premier League Rejects Temporary Ban

Despite a majority vote in favor of a temporary ban on related-party loans between Premier League clubs, Newcastle’s bid to sign players on loan from teams owned by their Saudi proprietors remains unhindered.

The 12-club majority fell short of the required two-thirds support needed for the ban’s passage. Notably, Newcastle, along with Manchester City, Chelsea, Sheffield United, Everton, Wolves, Nottingham Forest, and Burnley, opposed the ban. This decision paves the way for potential signings like Ruben Neves from Saudi Pro League’s Al-Hilal, offering Newcastle a midfield solution amid Sandro Tonali’s suspension.
