According to the Sunday Express, Adidas has ended their kit sponsorship deal with Newcastle United. The association with the sportswear company goes back 14 years, but it is believed Adidas have become disillusioned with the negative publicity which has surrounded the club since Ashley took over.

Adidas were quick to distance themselves from stories linking them with Ashley’s controversial plan to re-name St James’ Park, and now they have decided not to renew a contract with Newcastle which ends in the summer.

It's rumored that Newcastle will sign with manufacturer Puma while adidas are on the verge of signing a contract with Spurs, who ironically ending their kit deal with Puma.

Newcastle United wanted the news of adidas’s departure delayed until after Christmas, as kit bought as presents will soon be out of date.

Well, they will have new shirts as well, so this is kind of pointless.<br /><br />On the sponsor, they should bring back Ty

In response to one of the other guests, it is possible for Portsmouth to have the same sponsor as City. Just because they&#039;ve signed a deal with City doesn&#039;t restrict themselves from signing a deal with Pompey. If you want an example, look at Wigan and Bolton who share the sponsor 118 bet.

2 points- <br />1-The prospective new owner does not represent the UAE Royal family that own Etihad - he is a property developer, why not advertise his own company?<br />2-Etihad are based in Abu Dhabi not Dubai...that would be Emirates...

That is interesting.<br /><br />Let's hope Puma don't ruin the iconic Toon stripes then. I personally would love to see Umbro make a return.<br /><br /> I remember not 10 years ago, Spurs had adidas before switching to Kappa.
