Newcastle United have confirmed the departure of Steve Bruce from St. James’ Park this morning.

Steve Bruce has lasted less than two weeks into the club’s Saudi Arabian backed buy out with the former Manchester United defender in line for an £8m pay out.

Bruce’s exit is expected to be the first of sweeping changes on Tyneside after kicking off the new era with defeat to Tottenham last weekend.

Assistant coach Graeme Jones will take charge away at Crystal Palace this weekend with the hunt now on for a new manager.

Former Bournemouth coach Eddie Howe is the current favourite, alongside Paulo Fonseca, but the club are not expected to make a firm decision on Bruce’s successor until at least next week.
