While this news is very distressing, Dejphon Chansiri has not accepted the offer as far as we can tell. The report does state that the Sheffield Wednesday owner still may request compensation for Bruce’s assistants Steve Agnew and Stephen Clemence.
So basically Dejphon Chansiri is our only hope at this point. It is looking extremely unlikely that anything can prevent this appointment from happening, however.
To think the one time Mike Ashley pays over the odds, it’s for Steve Bruce. Not Virgil Van Dijk. Not Luka Modric. Not even for Rafa Benitez, with whom we would be flying high right now.
This is a bit of what Alan Nixon has written in what could be the conclusion of the horror show both Newcastle and Sheffield Wednesday fans have witnessed these past few days:
Steve Agnew and Stephen Clemence have left without their transfer fees being agreed. However that should not be a major issue.
Bruce is now on his way to Tyneside after a bitter end to his brief spell at Wednesday.
Chansiri has been given the cash up front and will now be able to find a new man in a hurry.
The Owls owner is likely to look for an out of work domestic boss to take over from Bruce.
He is fuming after backing him in his short stay and signing players for next season.
Everything Ashley touches is a mess. What a travesty this summer has turned into.
