Sam Allardyce: "It is crystal clear now what the motives were for Mike Ashley.

"I think that he did buy the club in the hope that he could quickly sell it on for a vast profit.

"It is going from bad to horrendous and there is part of me that thinks I'm glad I'm out of it.

"I thought Kevin was going to get the money I didn't get - but the continuous sales and players moving in and out over the summer obviously caused him to conclude the job was untenable and the club was thrown into chaos."
