Newcastle boss Bruce explains selling Lejeune

Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce has explained his decision to sell Florian Lejeune.

The French center back moved on to Alaves after impressing there on loan last season.

A fan on BBC Radio Newcastle asked why Lejeune was moved on by Bruce.

Bruce responded: "We had six centre-backs.

"The big thing with Florian was he had two knee injuries.

"He needed to get games under his belt.

"And I felt that the intensity in the Premier League meant he was better suited to La Liga."
