Bruce Speaks On Extensions And Injuries Ahead Of Sheffield United



The Chronicle is reporting a total of six Magpies have or will extend their contracts to the end of the season.

It had already been confirmed that loan lads Valentino Lazaro and Danny Rose will remain at Newcastle.

There were also reports that Andy Carroll and Javier Manquillo had verbally agreed to extend their deals.

Now according to the Chronicle, Nabil Bentaleb’s loan move from Schalke has been extended. It also looks like Matty Longstaff will be staying at least until the end of this campaign.

Here is what Steve Bruce said about the loanees and out-of-contract players:

“All our lads, including the loan players and out-of-contract players, have verbally agreed to stay on and play to the end of the season, which is obviously a good thing.

“With the out-of-contract players, the club are in discussion with them at the moment.

“There’s been a lot of dialogue with the Premier League and what we’re going to do with out-of-contract players, and what they decided to do was grant an extension to the end of the season.”

Steve Bruce gave his press conference this morning for Sunday’s match against Sheffield United via Zoom.

He confirmed that four players are struggling with minor knocks. They are Sean and Matty Longstaff, Matt Ritchie, and Dwight Gayle.

    Sean Ingle has Tweeted again………………….

    “To stop my mentions going haywire: for weeks it was clear through various conversations that Newcastle takeover decision was a long away, even when fans/others believed Staveley saying it’d be days. Think it’s more like days not weeks and weeks now (but don’t know exactly when).”

    Lesh ..”………l have always had you down as somewhat deluded and totally obsessed with finding opportunities to criticise capitalism and Conservative politics.
    However today you have surpassed yourself with the numerous cringeworthy toe curling comments you have posted that make it embarrassing and uncomfortable to have you as a fellow supporter of our club.
    In your quest to try and spread radical, far left , Marxist ,propoganda on this blog whilst supporting divisive, race baiting terrorist groups you are a danger and liability to our club.
    Please have a serious word with yourself and try and get things in perspective .

    Of course my suggestion that Macthingy, the morally bankrupt SNP MP, be appointed to Cabinet are ridiculous. Even this lot wouldn’t be so daft as to invite the resulting flak.

    ‘Propoganda’ is actually spelled propaganda.

    Had it not been for that mis-spelling, your post would’ve earned a mark of 1 out of 10.

    I’ve said many times I really don’t know how I’m going to react… I can kinda guess what it would be like. Like the most euphoric moment ever (sorry wifey) in my entire life but I still think it will be even beyond that.

    I’m man enough to say I’ll weep tears of joy

    I’ve set Freeview ch 11, Sky Pick, to record the match on Sunday. If it records fine, if not, that’s life.

    Regarding our game on Sunday, i wonder how the players will react if we hav`nt yet had an announcement but think it will happen.
    I think some will be in a positive frame of mind knowing there will be new owners and will be eager to impress, but what about those who maybe think their time is up and think they could be out the door, will they give 100%.
    I would hope their professionalism ensures they give it their all regardless, they get paid enough.

    mattroge, this Sean Ingle guy seems to have quite a measured approach to journalism – pretty rare by today’s standards.

    Where’s the clickbait sensationalism we’ve come to expect?

    Hi folks I honestly thought we’d have heard something by now, ah well maybe tomorrow?
    Anyway was wondering what you guys and guy esses?? drink over the weekend.
    I’m looking for an excuse to have my first drink of the week (later) which is quite good as it used to be every other day.
    As it’s still a, week away from payday I’m hoping a bottle of good old Grant’s and 1or 10 will see me through… Oh, incase I forget.., Happy Fathers Day to one and all. (Well the Dads anyway)

    As it the weekend, I’m sure we’ll expect more words of wisdom from you. As the drink goes down, confidence in your own wit’ll go up! Hey ho, what joy.
