Allardyce rejects Newcastle return over recruitment issues

The Daily Mail says Toon approached Allardyce last week about a shock return to St. James' Park.

However, the former England manager turned down the opportunity over concerns about the club's recruitment policy.

Owner Mike Ashley was keen on a reunion with Allardyce because it would not cost him a compensation fee.
