The Reuben brothers have bought into English football club Newcastle United as part of its takeover by a Saudi Arabian state investment fund.

The £300m ($408m) deal for the struggling Premier League team saw the billionaire UK shipowners' RB Sports & Media take a 10% stake.

Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund has 80% and PCP Capital Partners owns the other 10%.

The takeover had been halted in 2020 amid protests over Saudi Arabia's record on human rights.
