Steve Bruce confronted by angry Sheffield Wednesday supporter over Newcastle links

Wednesday want £5million and Bruce admitted is waiting to see if a deal can be struck before he can succeed Rafa Benitez at St James' Park.

The Star journalist Dom Howson relayed on his personal Twitter account, that the former Sunderland manager confirmed he has attended a meeting with Newcastle officials, and that his future is now in the hands of the two clubs. For me, at this particular moment, there is nothing really to talk about until the two clubs reach some sort of compromise. My agent contacted me, I had a think about it and a quick look at the situation and thanked them very much.

It is reported that most Sheffield Wednesday fans were warm towards the former Sunderland manager though, singing the team off at half time to a chorus of "Stevie Bruce's barmy army", so not all Wednesday fans are as bitter as the person in question. As I've said, it is in the hands of both clubs and we will see what develops over the next 24, 48 hours.

The Magpies are due to depart for the Premier League Asia Trophy in China on Saturday.

News of Bruce's impending arrival has been met with a distinctly mixed response on Tyneside, with fans still upset by Benítez's exit and by a failed attempt to replace him with Sam Allardyce.

Bruce was appointed as Owls manager in January before taking charge of the Championship side in February, guiding them to 12th in the table.

The majority of fans in attendance gave Bruce a huge reception, with chants throughout from the away end.
