Newcastle United’s new chairman Yasir Al-Rumayyan is set to be at Sunday’s game with Tottenham Hotspur, 90min understands.

The Magpies hope that the chief executive at Public Investment Fund – who own 80% of Newcastle – will arrive in the country on Thursday, although that has not been officially confirmed by the club.

Al-Rumayyan will arrive in the North East for the first time since the takeover – which is also backed by a consortium made up of PCP Capital Partners, and David and Simon Reuben – was confirmed, and will link-up with fellow board directors Amanda Staveley and Jamie Reuben to begin his role as non-executive chairman.

The 51-year-old is due to have a busy few days in England as he will meet staff, including as it stands manager Steve Bruce – although sources believe he will be the one to rubber stamp his sacking, which has been on the cards since the takeover was confirmed.

Newcastle have already decided that Bruce and managing director Lee Charnley will be leaving St James’ Park and 90min can confirm talks are ongoing with a number of targets for both jobs.
