That was the question Mike Ashley has asked potential buyers, so he can make a move to bring back the GOALden Boy.

Shearer will be appointed as Newcastle manager later this week as the race to buy the club reaches a significant landmark.

Interested parties who have proved to the satisfaction of investment bankers Seymour Pierce they have the finances to meet owner Mike Ashley's asking price will be given electronic access to the Magpies' books tomorrow.

That will effectively signal the start of a formal period of due diligence, a process which could take some time to complete.
