Sheffield Wednesday announce Newcastle reported to Premier League

Newcastle United have been reported to the Premier League by Sheffield Wednesday over the appointment of Steve Bruce.

Wednesday claim legal issues are yet to be resolved after Bruce was announced as Toon manager two days after handing in his resignation at Hillsborough.

It said: "Following Newcastle United's announcement on 17 July 2019 of its appointment of former Sheffield Wednesday staff Steve Bruce, Steve Agnew and Stephen Clemence, the Club confirms that it has today reported Newcastle United's conduct to the Premier League.

"As the Premier League will now initiate and carry out investigations into the Club's allegations, the Club will not be commenting further on this matter whilst such investigations are ongoing."
