It has been suggested in recent days that new United owner Mike Ashley might be willing to listen to offers for the north-east club he bought just two months ago, with consortia from China and Iceland mooted as possible buyers.
But chairman Chris Mort has dismissed the speculation as "mischief", telling the club´s website, www.nufc.co.uk: "I think most fans appreciate that there are those that make mischief by circulating stories about players and clubs. We have not, for example, had offers for Obafemi Martins or, for that matter, for the club itself."
