Newcastle fans have been reacting on social media to the news the club are yet to agree compensation with Sheffield Wednesday for Steve Bruce.

According to The Telegraph’s Luke Edwards, talks are ongoing between the two clubs but have so far failed to conclude a deal.

The Wednesday owner and chairman Dejphon Chansiri is demanding a fee of £5million, and want it all paid in one go, according to The Times.

The Newcastle squad fly out to China this weekend to take part in the Premier League Asia Trophy and it is believed the club want the 58-year-old installed before that.

Bruce, who was only installed as Owls boss in February was linked to the Newcastle job back in 2015. The former Sunderland wants to take over his boyhood club, but judging the reactions of the supporters, they do not.

Many Magpies fans took to Twitter to share their opinions about the deal taking Bruce to St James’ Park has not been concluded as yet.

One stated that the people running the club ‘should be arrested for incompetence and neglect, whilst another added ‘what a joke’ of a situation ‘hopefully they won’t agree’ a deal.
