Transfer talk Steve Bruce resigns as Newcastle switch nears by Dave Filmer Published

Newcastle United have yet to agree compensation for Steve Bruce's backroom staff, despite paying the fee required to release the Sheffield Wednesday manager from his contract, according to the Sun.

The 58-year-old had only been with the Championship club since January, leading them to a comfortable 12th place finish after they had struggled under previous coach Jos Luhukay.

It is believed Steve Agnew and Stephen Clemence have also tendered their resignation with a view to joining the former Hull City manager at St James' Park.

Sheffield Wednesday chairman Dejphon Chansiri looks likely to accept the compensation for Bruce and initiate his search for a replacement soon.

Born near Newcastle and a boyhood Magpies fan, Bruce told BBC Radio Sheffield on Sunday: "Speculation is speculation".

Wednesday fans, who should the Owls target with their apparent Bruce windfall?

Try to self-improve as much as possible. "I want to be a part of a winning team", Antetokounmpo continued. For Thanasis Antetokounmpo, it will not be the only time he shares a stage with his brother.

Speaking after the match, Bruce said: "It's in the hands of both clubs".

Telegraph Sport revealed Bruce was set to be appointed by Newcastle last week but the switch had been temporarily halted over an increasingly acrimonious dispute over compensation.

"We'll see what develops over the next 24 to 48 hours."

"At this particular moment, there is nothing really to talk about until the two clubs reach some sort of compromise".

"It's come from nowhere over the last two or three days, so let's see what the weekend brings".
