Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce has taken training for the first time today as he gets to work at his new club.
The ex-Sunderland manager was appointed as the man to succeed Rafa Benitez yesterday.
His arrival hasn’t been met with too many positive comments, but ultimately winning football matches will soon have fans singing his name.
Before the football gets underway, Bruce may well enter the transfer market.
The middle of the park is an area that the new boss will surely look to strengthen during the summer.
One player that could help Bruce win the fans over is Huddersfield Town maestro Aaron Mooy.
The Australian signed for the Terriers for £8 million in 2017 (BBC Sport). He helped Huddersfield Town into the Premier League and then was part of the team that saw them defy the odds and survive relegation.
Last season was a miserable one for Mooy, and for Huddersfield as the club finished bottom and were relegated back to the Championship.
The 28-year-old has 39 caps for his country and can play in a number of versatile midfield roles.
Mooy is out of contract next summer and although the club retains a one-year option to extend his stay, the play would surely relish a return to the top-flight.
Bruce needs his signings to excite.
Okay, the Huddersfield man isn’t world-class but the intelligent player would be a smart piece of business for Newcastle.
He works hard, is energetic, has a positive injury record and can also weigh in with goals if played in the right position.
The signing of the Terriers star wouldn’t break the bank and Bruce could always rely on Mooy to put in a shift in for his team.
