Premier League clubs have complained to the Premier League following the Newcastle United takeover and reportedly called for an emergency meeting.

A report in the Guardian last night claims that all 19 clubs in the division, besides the Magpies, are united in opposition to the Saudi-led consortium's takeover and want to know what changed for it to be waved through.

They are also reportedly irked by the fact they received so little notice.

While any emergency meeting would be too late to change anything, with the takeover now complete, clubs are still keen to get answers from the league.

The other 19 teams are believed to have expressed concern about the Premier League's brand, with Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) taking an 80% stake in Newcastle, despite fierce opposition from human rights campaigners.

There is also thought to be concern from teams about how competitive Newcastle could now become and how their wealth could inflate transfer fees and wages.

For Watford, the takeover likely strengthens a relegation rival's chances of avoiding the drop this season, with vast funds now available for investment in the squad once the January transfer window opens.

The two sides drew at Vicarage Road earlier in the season, and the Magpies are still yet to win a game. 

They currently sit four points behind the Hornets in 19th.
