Newcastle boss Bruce eager to take close look at Barlaser, Watts

Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce has added Dan Barlaser and Kell Watts to his training squad for the remainder of the season.

Bruce admits he's been keen to take a closer look at both youngsters.

"The two lads on loan, in particular, I was going to have another look at in pre-season," Bruce told NUFC TV.

"We don't even know when the next pre-season is going to be so I think it's an ideal time to bring them into the squad.

"I've never seen Barlaser play - he's had good reports down in Rotherham - so let's give him the opportunity to come and train with the players and be a part of us going forward.

"It's a good chance to have a look at them. That's what we're doing as far as them two are concerned. As I've said, they've both had successful loan spells out so let's bring them in, have a look and see where they're up to."
