PREMIER - Newcastle, Bruce takes training but exit imminent

Newcastle manager Steve Bruce took training on Tuesday but is expected to be relieved of his duties this week before the Super Sunday match against Tottenham at St James' Park.

Bruce, who met part-owner Amanda Staveley for the first time on Monday, took training alongside his assistant coach Graeme Jones on Tuesday morning despite his future being unclear.

Staveley had planned to meet with Bruce and the players last Friday having concluded PCP's Capital Partners' takeover of the club, but both manager and players were off due to the international break training schedule.

Staveley, who is the chief executive of PCP Capital Partners and a director on the Newcastle board, is back in the north-east after spending the weekend at her home in London.
