Steve Bruce has resigned as head coach of Sheffield Wednesday amid reports he is due to be appointed as manager of Newcastle United.

Bruce was only appointed in January and did not actually take over for another month, guiding them to a 12th-place finish in the Championship.

The Magpies held talks with Bruce, 58, on Saturday and he is the overwhelming favourite to succeed Rafael Benitez.

He leaves Hillsborough with assistants Steve Agnew and Stephen Clemence.

Newcastle have flown to China without a manager as they prepare to face Wolves in the Premier League Asia Trophy in Nanjing on Wednesday.

Born near Newcastle and a boyhood Magpies fan, Bruce told BBC Radio Sheffield on Sunday: "Speculation is speculation. It's in the hands of the clubs. For me there's nothing to talk about until the two clubs reach some sort of compromise."

During his career, Bruce has managed 10 clubs, including a spell in charge of Newcastle's north-east rivals Sunderland.

Benitez left the Magpies at the expiry of his contract at the end of last season, and has said the Premier League club "did not share his vision".

To be fair all managers get sacked or resign in the end.

To also be fair - Has there ever been a manager that has had no qualms about shitting on their employer so many time?

Also - Both brum clubs, both Sheffield clubs, Mackems and NUFC - Clear sign that he really doesnt care about the project or its supporters, or he wouldnt be so happy to play for both sides, if that makes any sense.

Fair comment, but almost all do!

On another note, next thing to happen is going to be SW putting an injunction on Bruce joining us until compensation is agreed.

At what point will Sky report on a PL club actually being set on fire by its owner?

I'm passed low, mate.

Am now watching with amusement as I have resigned to not going back and perversely wanting things to go from bad to worse for the fat twat.

I'd go to League 2 in a heartbeat and start again if it meant getting owners with good intentions.

Sports Direct share price tumbled 10% this week.

His insane gobbling up of high street names appears to be backfiring too.

Several gambles too many it seems right now.

What a shitfest ffs only at NUFC actually not true plenty of clubs have had worse but I don’t care about them. Unfortunately unlike some of you on here I can’t completely switch off from the club. I could pretend I was going to but Iknow it won’t happen.

Not sure many if any clubs have had to endure what we are.

Yes we have seen clubs go to the wall or suffer multiple relegation's - But this shit is so bizarre that its unprecedented.

We have had 5(?) communications from the club in what has been an insanely eventful and damaging 2 months:

Season ticket prices up again - Come and get them.

New kits released, dearest in the country - Come and get them.

Rafa has left.

Perez has left.

Joselu has left (only today)


Thats fucking it!

I genuinely hope that this appointment (if it happens) sticks in the throat of every fan who thought the best way to support Benitez while he was getting the shit ripped out of him was to turn up and pay Ashley money to do so

He was tret like shite for 3 seasons and 50 odd thousand were more than happy to endorse it

Are there any other clubs who have an owner that DELIBERATELY doesn't want the team to compete?

He probably also knows that they can't swim underwater holding a cotton bud because they can't hold their breath so would drown fairly quickly....common knowledge that is..

Well done Steve Bruce. Many thought you'd be gone even before Christmas. Hopefully with other clubs sacking their managers they will have less spending power in the up coming transfer window.
