Bruce says future decision is imminent
Sheffield Wednesday boss Steve Bruce says more will be known about his future in the next 48 hours with a switch to Newcastle now likely.
Wednesday continued the build up to the new season with a 3-1 friendly win against Lincoln at Sincil Bank on Saturday, but the future of Bruce took centre stage.
An angry Wednesday fan confronted Bruce on the touchline during the game, and the Owls boss was open about Newcastle’s interest when addressing the media afterwards.
‘Speculation is speculation.
It’s in the hands of the club,’ he said.
‘For me, at this particular moment, there is nothing really to talk about until the two clubs reach some sort of compromise.
‘Look, it has happened so quickly that I have got to take stock of the situation.
It’s in the hands of both clubs and we will see what develops over the next 24 to 48 hours.’
