Newcastle gamble on Bruce as head coach

His highest finish in the top-flight was 10th, with Birmingham in 2003-04 and Sunderland in 2010-11.

But Bruce has his work cut out at Newcastle, who have already lost their leading forwards from last season — Salomon Rondon and Ayoze Perez — and are the only top-flight club yet to make a signing since the end of last term.

The Premier League transfer window closes in less than a month, adding to the pressure on Bruce as he tries to win over disillusioned fans amid calls for a boycott of St James’ Park until Ashley sells the club.

The Newcastle squad are currently on a pre-season tour in China and Bruce and his staff are scheduled to travel to join them there following Wednesday’s match in Nanjing against Wolves.
