Newcastle boss Bruce has no idea where he stands

Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce has no idea where he stands regarding the club's imminent takeover.

The Daily Star says the 59-year-old - who replaced Rafa Benitez last summer - has been left in the dark about his St James' Park future.

Prior to the Premier League's coronavirus-enforced break, Bruce led Newcastle to 13th spot, eight points clear of the relegation zone.

But the north east club are the joint-lowest scorers in the league with only 25 goals in 29 games and their lack of enterprising attacking football has seen Bruce come in for criticism.

Bruce has been in regular contact with the club's managing director Lee Charnley but has not heard from higher up, putting a cloud over his long-term future.
