Derby boss Rooney keen on replacing Bruce at Newcastle

Derby County boss Wayne Rooney is keen on the Newcastle United job.

Manchester United great Rooney is interested in taking over at Newcastle United should the club's new Saudi owners sack Steve Bruce.

ChronicleLive reports Rooney, who is cutting his teeth in management with Derby County in the Championship, would be interested in the role if it became available.

Derby are mired in administration and sit bottom of the Championship, leaving Rooney hamstrung in his hopes of taking Derby up the table.

The report goes on to add that should Rooney be appointed he would be interested in bringing in former Newcastle goalkeeper Shay Given as part of his coaching staff.

Given spent some time working at Derby and any return to St James' Park would undoubtedly prove a hit with supporters.
