'Fake' Interest In Toon?

Last updated : 04 October 2008 By Footy Mad - Editor
One of the South African businessmen linked with a takeover of Newcastle has labelled suggestions he is interested in the club as "fake".

Billionaire Johann Rupert, the man behind Swiss-owned luxury goods company Richemont, has rubbished reports he has eyes on succeeding Mike Ashley as owner at St James' Park.

Fellow South African Jonathan Cleland claims to have already spoken to former manager Kevin Keegan about a return to the club if a consortium he is heading is successful.
