Sean Dyche and Chris Wilder could be in the frame for the Newcastle United job should Steve Bruce leave his post at St James’ Park, according to a report from Eurosport.
Bruce is coming under increasing pressure amongst fans with the Magpies sliding closer to the bottom three in the Premier League.
They have not won any of their last six. And their 3-0 loss at Brighton was their third defeat in that run of games.
It is claimed by Eurosport that Mike Ashley continues to feel that Bruce is the right man for the job. But it appears that other options may be emerging.
Eurosport reports that Dyche and Wilder would be in the frame if Bruce does leave.
Wilder is, of course a free agent after leaving Sheffield United. He had done an incredible job at Bramall Lane. And he arguably appears to be the perfect candidate to make the fans proud of the team once again.
Dyche meanwhile, has been just as impressive at Burnley. And it would be no surprise if a number of clubs were hoping that they could convince the 49-year-old that he has taken the Clarets as far as he can.
At this point, it is difficult to see Newcastle supporters having a problem with the thought of either coming in.
