Amanda Staveley heads out for plush meal with husband before taking 30-SECOND taxi to nightclub after Newcastle takeover

AMANDA STAVELEY and husband Mehrdad Ghodoussi were spotted getting a taste of the Newcastle nightlife on Saturday.

Staveley, 48, enjoyed some downtime after a hectic first week as a director of Newcastle United.

She and Ghodoussi had a meal in Aveika restaurant before taking a 30-second cab ride to their next destination – Livello Nightclub.

There the pair met up with friends and they were guided inside by security.

Staveley and her husband were ushered straight to the luxurious VIP section and its futuristic, neon pink colour scheme.

The Newcastle duo stayed at the cocktail bar until around 12:30 a.m. before returning to their hotel.

Eating at Aveika before partying in Livello is not new to Newcastle F.C. – players from the 2017 Championship winning team celebrated their achievements in the venues after lifting the trophy.

Staveley is aiming to bring more success to St. James' Park but is realistic about the work that needs to be done and how long it could take to build up the club.


The entrepreneur has promised heavy investment in multiple areas of the club – stating Newcastle "can't have the world’s greatest players with a really terrible changing room."

As a result, the Magpies' January transfer budget has been set at £50million, though there is another £150m available if needed.

This week Staveley also sat down with manager Steve Bruce to discuss his future, and it is possible the director has been considering his successor – several managers have been linked to Newcastle since the takeover.
