Newcastle United held a positive round of talks with Paulo Fonseca on Wednesday about the manager's job.
The Daily Mail says Newcastle held talks with Fonseca today as he emerges as a serious contender for the head coach vacancy following Bruce's departure.
The Portuguese coach held talks with members of the club's hierarchy on Wednesday afternoon following the earlier departure of Bruce.
The discussions did not end with a definitive answer over whether Newcastle will look to proceed with appointing Fonseca, but were said to be positive.
The call is understood to have centred around Fonseca's footballing philosophy, with little focus on any potential contract.
Nevertheless, Fonseca appears to be a genuine contender for the post vacated by Bruce on Wednesday.
Fonseca is viewed as an attractive proposition given his pedigree and the fact he is available and ready to work.
