Newcastle boss Bruce: I'm delighted Hendrick joining

Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce says a deal for Jeff Hendrick is close.

The off contract Burnley midfielder was due to take a medical yesterday.

"It's practically a done deal so we hope Jeff can join us over the weekend," said Bruce.

"I'm delighted to get him on board. He's an experienced international footballer."

Hendrick left Burnley after his deal expired on June 30.
