- Lucien Favre and Brendan Rodgers current favourites for job
- Ghodoussi and Staveley make first visit to training ground
Steve Bruce was understood to be close to losing his job as Newcastle United’s manager on Monday night as the club’s new Saudi Arabian power broker, Yasir al-Rumayyan, prepared to visit St James’ Park for the first time.
Rumayyan, Newcastle’s non-executive chairman, is scheduled to be at Sunday’s Premier League home game against Tottenham, with the first-team coach, Graeme Jones, likely to be in caretaker charge of the team, while the board continues to assess the credentials of shortlisted managerial candidates – including the current bookmakers’ favourite Lucien Favre and Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers.
