Newcastle fans were left disappointed after Mike Ashley’s Sports Direct bought ailing high-street chain House of Fraser, saving it from possible closure, because of what they feel is a lack of recent investment in the team.

The company announced the acquisition to the stock exchange on Friday, paying £90m in cash to the administrators.

These were the best jokes as Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley buys House of Fraser:

Mike Ashley has bought House of Fraser for £90m. The department store will go straight into Rafa Benítez's Newcastle squad for tomorrows game against Spurs.

Great to see Mike Ashley finally coming to his senses and spending money where it's needed. Great signing. Welcome to Newcastle Fraser. #NUFC #MikeAshley pic.twitter.com/3UN9gMHhyO

Mike Ashley's a smart man. Bought a £90m business and now Newcastle have 3000 extra employees at their disposal. There's bound to be atleast 20 of them who can ping a 40 yarder into the back of the net.

I'm convinced that Mike Ashley has an ongoing gentleman's bet with a mate that he can become the single most hated man in the North East…
