The Geordies are on the lookout for fresh ideas
Newcastle United have refused to comment on talk that they are about to add former Belgium coach Graeme Jones to their back-room team.
But the club did not deny rumours coming from the South Coast that Steve Bruce is about to bring in a fresh voice to his staff.
Jones is currently at Bournemouth, and has worked as a coach with Roberto Martinez in the past – both at club level with Swansea City and on the international stage with Belgium.
Newcastle are struggling in the Premier League at the minute, and have won none of their last nine games in all competitions. A fresh approach may be welcomed, with Gateshead-born Jones, currently first team coach at Bournemouth, targeted.
The Cherries have confirmed that no official approach for the 50-year-old has been made yet, but it’s clear that Newcastle are on the lookout for some new blood.
