A Newcastle United fans group is seeking further clarity over the club's alleged plans to sell a lease on land next to St James' Park.

The 125-year lease, on land opposite the Gallogate end, was purchased from Nexus in 1998 under the Sir John Hall and Freddie Shepherd regime for potential ground expansion in the future.

Newcastle United Supporters Trust says the club's current owner, Mike Ashley, is attempting to privately sell the lease. It's understood the land could then be developed for either a hotel or student accommodation.

NUST Chairman, Norman Watson, has written to Newcastle City Council to request further details under the Freedom of Information Act.
