fans traveled to London on Friday to show their anger to the Premier League about the lack of transparency from the governing body about the takeover of the club by Amanda Staveley's firm PCP Capital Partners and Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund.

Amanda Staveley, who is leading the takeover of the club, has asked the government to finalize the Premier League’s decision about the ownership of the club.

The organizer of the protest Holly Blades insists that not giving answers about the process of the takeover has become frustrating to the supporters.

"We felt compelled to organize the protest because it has been 15 months that we have now been waiting for an answer to this takeover, the longest kind of time that it has taken for something like this,"

she told Sky Sports News

.

"We just feel like we can't be kept in this limbo for much longer and we can't sit and have no comment from the Premier League. We need some sort of answers because it is not fair on the fans, Steve Bruce, the players, anyone - because we really don't know what is happening with the club and it is putting us in a massively damaging situation.

"We know the arbitration is going ahead in July, we're not sure exactly when in July, because that has been kept private, it is not public information, but we wanted to go down to London where the Premier League and government are situated to say that we want transparency because we feel like as supporters of the club it is our right to know what is happening in this situation, we've been kept in the dark."

Holly, who has claimed that the protest has been so effective in pushing the government t6o making the decision, has urged them to intervene because she thinks that the Premier League has not been acting efficiently.

"We want the government to intervene as well because they have the power to. They were able to intervene in the European Super League case and we don't see the difference between this one,"

Holly said
