Newcastle defender Lascelles escapes ticking off from Bruce

Newcastle United defender Jamaal Lascelles has escaped with just a ticking off from Steve Bruce after his unauthorised London visit.

The Newcastle captain went to the capital following Sunday's 5-0 surrender at Leicester, despite telling his boss he was seeing family in Nottingham.

Lascelles, 25, travelled by train with team-mate DeAndre Yedlin, who had been given permission to go to London for rehab work.

Bruce felt misled by his skipper Lascelles and questioned him when the Toon returned to training yesterday.

But The Sun reports the Magpies manager was satisfied by the defender's explanation and no further action will be taken.
