The Swede took over as director of football at Meadow Lane in the summer after Qadbak Investments took charge of the club.

The new owners have decided to remain low-key and instead allow chief executive Peter Trembling to front the club.

The Magpies are currently under investigation by the Football League to determine whether the owners pass the fit and proper persons act and Eriksson admits that he has never met the men in charge.

"If you ask me if I met them my answer is very simple and honest I haven't," he told Sky Sports News.

"I don't know them I haven't met them I have only met the two representatives of the owners and when I signed I did some research and what the people who did tell me it was real and so far I can't say the opposite, so far everything is good.

"People ask where the money is coming from and I don't really know but the club is working, everyone has been paid there have been new players coming in so it has been good."
